USGS Presentation Topic: Unconventional Rocks Abstract: U.S. Geological Survey is presenting on “unconventional rocks” recovered from the Moon during NASA’s Apollo Program.  The presentation begins with a newly revised video clip of the Apollo Saturn V rocket launch from Kennedy Space Center’s historic Launch Complex 39A.  Then, learn about the lunar geophysical experiments conducted on the Moon.  After the presentation, audience members are invited to view the Moon rocks on short-term loan from NASA. Lunar rock samples are embedded in…

David Shelly, United States Geological Survey Topic: Untangling the Web of Fluids and Faulting in Earthquake Swarms Abstract: Earthquake swarms are common signatures of unrest in both volcanic and tectonic environments. Their interpretation in the broader system depends upon determining the underlying physical processes driving the swarm, which can be difficult.  Seismic recordings of earthquakes provide the most direct constraints on active processes in the source region, yet limited resolution of routine processing obscures much of this valuable information. Here, I…

Oliver Jagoutz, Massachusetts Institute of Technology 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Low-latitude Arc-continent Collision as a Driver for Global Cooling Abstract: Throughout most of Earth’s history, and certainly over at least the last 500 MA, the global the global climate was much warmer than the climate we experiencing today and the poles were most of the time ice free. However, at least in the last 500 Ma the Earth has experienced a few so-call ice-ages were poles were covered in ice like…

Derek Sawyer, Ohio State University, School of Earth Sciences 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Subaqueous Debris Flow Processes and Deposits Abstract: Earthquakes are a primary trigger of submarine landslides yet some of the most seismically active areas on Earth show a surprisingly low frequency of submarine landslides. Our recent work has explored this apparent paradox using shear strength measurements from 50 years of scientific ocean drilling over the world’s oceans. We find that within the uppermost 100 meters below seafloor sediment, active margins…

John Muntean, Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology, University of Nevada Reno 241 Berthoud Hall, 4PM Topic: The Continua between Carlin-type Gold Deposits and Distal Disseminated and Epithermal Gold-Silver Deposits in Nevada Abstract: Most research on Carlin-type deposits in Nevada has focused on four main camps that account for 95% of the production from Carlin-type deposits in Nevada – the Carlin Trend, Cortez, Getchell, and Jerritt Canyon. Though their local geologic settings differ slightly, they share many common characteristics, including lithologic and…

Phil Brown, University of Wisconsin-Madison 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Iron Ores in North America - Past Importance, Future Promise Abstract: Iron ores of the upper Midwest and the research done on them and the rest of the Lake Superior region between 1870 and 1945 drove the Industrial Revolution, facilitated westward expansion and provided seminal work in many subfields of the geosciences. Approximately 3.4 billion tons (Gt) of iron ores containing >50 percent Fe were produced from U.S. mines in the Lake Superior…

Brian Romans, Virginia Tech 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Reconstructing Deep Ocean Circulation during Cenozoic Climate Transitions from the Marine Sediment Record Abstract: Ocean circulation plays a critical role in the Earth’s climate system through the storage and transfer of heat and carbon dioxide. The North Atlantic and Southern Ocean are of particular interest because these are regions where deep-water components of global circulation develop. Overall patterns and functioning of modern oceanic circulation is relatively well understood, but significant uncertainty remains about circulation…

Jennifer Druhan, University of Illinois 241 Berthoud, 4-5PM Topic: Isotopic Reactive Transport: Unraveling Biogeochemical Processes in Groundwater Systems Abstract: Water is a basic necessity for life, and exerts a primary control on virtually all geological, chemical and biological processes occurring at or near the Earth’s surface. Because these water-rock-life interactions take place at interfaces, both fluid composition and the physical and chemical structure of porous media must be treated as coevolving phenomena.  Such complex and interrelated processes can hinder both interpretation and…
