Without water, life as we know it cannot exist. The speakers in this program will discuss water’s vital role across four areas of modern inquiry: biology, earth science, public health, and the search for extraterrestrial life. What can researchers in these fields learn from one another? How will the interplay between climate change and oceans affect lives, from microorganisms’ to our own? What may “biosignatures” of alien worlds look like? How can we keep a good relationship with water on Earth, preserving its abundance and potability while keeping it out of city streets as sea levels rise?
8:00AM - 3:00PM Fri 23 Oct 2020 ( Timezone: Pacific )
