Dr. James Day, UCSD is Distinguished Lecturer This Week

  • Jan 23, 2017

Dr James Day, Associate Professor at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, is our featured speaker this week. He presents "Where Did All the Moon's Volitale Elements Go and How Did It Lose Them?" If you were to land on the Moon, how much water would there be and where would you find it? In this talk, he discusses some of the evidence for the distribution of volatile elements and compounds, like water, on the Moon. He also shows examples from a large-scale anthropogenic experiment for how volatiles may have been lost from planets during the earliest stages of their formation. This seminar will take place from 12:30 to 1:30 pm in Room 205, Natural Science Building on the East Lansing Campus.
