April 2014 Central Chapter Update


NMNWSE Central Chapter Presents....

What: Dr. Laura Crossey
UNM Department of Earth and Planetary Science
When: Wednesday, April 23rd. 6:30p - 8:30p
Where: Flying Star Cafe - Downtown
723 Silver Ave SW, Albuquerque

After a bit of a hiatus the NMNWSE Central Chapter would like to invite you out on April 23rd for an evening to reconnect!

Purchase your dinner and join us in the small conference room for a short presentation by Dr. Laura Crossey, a discussion on what you would like to see the your NMNWSE Central Chapter do, and an opportunity to network.

Dr. Laura Crossey's research and academic interests include: Aqueous and Sedimentary Geochemistry. Applications of low-temperature geochemistry to problems in hydrochemistry, sedimentary diagenesis, and geomicrobiology. My research approach combines field examination of modern early diagenetic environments (biogeochemistry of water and sediments) with laboratory analysis as well as core and outcrop evaluations applied to evaluate paleohydrology and reservoir/aquifer characteristics. Activities include geoscience outreach, K-12 outreach, and science education research as well as programs to increase the participation of under-represented groups in the science disciplines.
