How Lab scientists are using biogeochemistry to better understand and mend the planet

Join us on September 21 at 5:30 p.m. at Unquarked in Los Alamos.
These events are suitable for those of all ages.

The Earth is a complex place. The field of biogeochemistry seeks to better understand the links between geologic, chemical, and biological processes. During this Science on Tap event, join Sharon Bone, of the Lab’s Inorganic Isotope and Actinide Chemistry group, who will talk about how molecular- and nanometer-scale tools can help us better understand how human activity has influenced the fate of toxic elements on a regional scale. She’ll also talk about what steps are being taken to use natural mechanisms to help clean up that contamination.

The American Chemical Society, Central New Mexico Local Section, will provide light refreshments.

Science on tap

Science on Tap is a convivial opportunity to engage with Lab scientists on their current projects. A brief presentation is followed by lively questions, answers, and discussion. The fun takes place on the third Thursday of each month from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the UnQuarked Wine Room at 145 Central Park Plaza in Los Alamos.

The sessions are a joint project between the Bradbury Science Museum and the Los Alamos Creative District.
