During the past century, scientists have dissected the outer layers of our planet with bold scientific investigations revealing the deep properties of the Earth’s crust. These revelations have fostered scientific creativity and innovation being used in field measurements from the Tibetan plateau to the Pacific Ocean, and beyond.
USGS geophysicist Walter Mooney will be talk about how new scientific insights are providing clues to processes that have been shaping the Earth during the last 4.5 billion years at a free public lecture on January 24 at 7:00 pm.
