Hilairy Hartnett's 'Cruising and Coring the Southern Ocean in Search of Past Climates' Lecture

Hilairy Hartnett's 'Cruising and Coring the Southern Ocean in Search of Past Climates' Lecture

Please join us for our Fall 2019 New Discoveries Lecture featuring oceanographer and biogeochemist Hilairy Hartnett.

In November 2018, Hartnett joined a research cruise to take core samples from the Southern Indian Ocean floor. At this lecture, she will give listeners a look at life aboard a research ship exploring the Indian Ocean, how cores are collected from the ocean depths, and what they can tell us about the history and future of Earth’s climate.

About the speaker

Hilairy Hartnett has joint appointments at ASU in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and in the School of Molecular Sciences. She earned an AB degree in chemistry from Vassar College, and MS and PhD degrees in oceanography from the University of Washington. After postdoctoral work at Rutgers University, she joined ASU in 2003. Her current research interests are in the areas of:

• Biogeochemistry, specifically how geochemical, microbial, and anthropogenic processes affect the dynamic linked elemental cycles in modern and paleo-environments.

• Astrobiology and organic geochemistry, particularly how organic reactions are influenced by minerals under hydrothermal conditions and the implications for habitability.

• Urban ecology and Anthropocene science.


What are my parking options?

The Marston Exploration Theater is located on the first floor of ASU's Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV (ISTB 4), the home of the School of Earth and Space Exploration. ISTB 4 (map) is located near the intersection of Rural and Terrace Road in Tempe on the east side of campus. This seven-story structure is ASU’s largest research facility, and is accessible on foot via Orange Street and McAllister Ave. If arriving by Light Rail, exit at the "University and Rural Road" stop.

Parking is available inside the Rural Road parking structure just east of ISTB 4. From the parking structure, walk west and enter ISTB4 through the glass doors on the north side of the building.
