A Deeper Dive: The Scientific Study of the Plate Tectonics History of the World
November 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Linda Hall Library’s Deeper Dive programs are three-part courses that take in-depth looks into important science topics. The small class settings are ideal for audience interaction with expert faculty members. The first Deeper Dive session will focus on the earliest geologic history of the earth and of Northern Scotland in particular, by digging down into some of the scientific techniques that tell Scotland’s three-billion-year story.
Incredible detective work with radioactive isotopes, phenomenal chemical trace-element studies of some quite-boring looking rocks, and beautiful studies of minerals that make up the rocks combine to tell how our earth first developed a crust.
