Geological History of Water on Mars
August 8, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet at 7:00 P.M., Tuesday, August 8 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee.
Geological History of Water on Ancient Mars: Rivers, Seas…Life?
The Erratics go to Mars! To learn about huge floods! For more than 40 years U of Arizona Professor Victor R. Baker has studied results of space missions to the planet Mars. These findings have revealed the current extremely cold-dry state of the Red Planet is very different from its ancient geological history. Primordial Mars had immense amounts of liquid water, resulting in huge floods, river valleys, glaciers, lakes, seas, and the possibility of life.
Dr. Baker is Regents’ Prof. of Planetary Sciences in the Lunar & Planetary Laboratory, Prof. of Hydrology & Water Resources, and Prof. of Geosciences at U of Arizona. He has also studied Ice Age Floods on planet Earth for forty-some years.
The program is free & open to the public.
