Photo of speaker, Dr. Alfonso DavilaPlease join us on Thursday, April 4, 2013 at 4pm as we welcome Dr. Alfonso F. Davila, a Scientist at NASA Ames, and at the SETI Institute.  Dr. Davila will present, "Water and Life in the Solar System" in Mendocino Hall 1015. This lecture is free and open to the public.

Dr. Davila studied Geophysics at the University of Munich, Germany, and Marine Sciences at the University of Vigo, Spain.  His more recent research interests include the study of the geology, geochemistry, habitability and life in the extremely dry Atacama Desert   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atacama_Desert)  and the Antarctic Dry Valleys (http://icestories.exploratorium.edu/dispatches/big-ideas/dry-valleys/).  Results are expanding our understanding of the limits of life on Earth, and help us improve models of planetary habitability, particularly the possibility of life on Mars. 

We hope to see many of you in Mendocino Hall 1015 @4pm on Thursday, April 4.
