College of Science Lecture Series: 'Beneath Our Feet' (Virtual)
Join us virtually every Thursday in April for five free lectures exploring the science of water.
In the 16th annual College of Science Lecture Series, our distinguished faculty will take the audience on a journey through water, its history and its future. From the comfort of your home, you can watch the virtual premieres of lectures on the cosmic origins of water, the essential role of the Colorado River in the arid Southwestern United States today, and the next great water challenges for future generations. We will lay the foundations for understanding the water all around us, from the ocean to the groundwater beneath the surface.
This week's lecture will be hosted by Laura Condon.
Groundwater is by far the largest unfrozen freshwater resource on the planet. Yet, it is often overlooked, overused, or misunderstood. In this talk, we will explore how the water beneath our feet supports ecosystems and human systems alike and the role that it has to play in our future.
