Location: Santa Cruz, CA

Virginia Gulick, Senior Research Scientist at the SETI Institute, will speak at the University of California, Santa Cruz, Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics seminar series.

Wielding degrees in geoscience, Ginny examines erosional features on Mars, looking for the tell-tale signs of running water. Some of the meandering valley networks that lace the martian landscape may be proof of a warmer, wetter world; one that existed billions of years ago. But other features, including gullies found around many impact craters and valley walls, may bespeak water that’s still erupting and flowing on the martian surface today.
