History in the Mud at Varsity Theater this Tuesday

Science deserves to be explored in fun new ways, like at a bar with ultra-comfy couches and in the company of other nerdy but cool adults. Sorry kids, you'll have to sit this one out. So come on down to the Varsity Theater in Dinkytown on Tuesday, Jan. 10th to explore the "History in the Mud: Lake Sediment Core Research." It's FREE.

"The study of core samples from lakes - paleolimnology - provides a window into the ecology, climate, and geology of the past. Lakes integrate their surroundings, archiving pollen from plants growing around the lake, grains derived from local rocks and soils, aquatic plants and algae, and minerals produced in the lake itself that preserve a record of water chemistry and temperature. Learn about ongoing research into lake records spanning from a few decades in lakes formed by manmade dams to millions of years in the deep, ancient African rift lakes."

This lecture is part of the Bell Museum of Natural History's Cafe Scientifique program. Cafe Scientifique is a great program that started in Europe and has spread to Canada and now to the US. Cafe Scientifique is ...

a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology.

Cafe Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable.

MRCP II MADE EASY has reminded us of the danger of tinkling with the nucleotides of life. Overall it is a good book of the new science of biology over disease.
