“How climate change records can be derived from soil and land features in New Mexico” will be presented at Science Café on May 30 at 5:00 PM. Curtis Monger, NMSU soils and desert morphology specialist, will explain how memory of climate is recorded in soil and landforms. With samples and charts he will relate climate changes that were revealed as part of the Canada Alamosa Project now exhibited at the Farm and Ranch Heritage Museum. Learn how examining soil layers and landscape features like river terraces and rock glaciers provide for understanding today’s climate.
Sigma Xi’s Science Café is presented by the Scientific Research Society, in cooperation with the Las Cruces Museum of Nature and Science. The free Café discussions are presented to advance greater public understanding and to encourage use of available science. Students and all those seeking greater knowledge of current science are encouraged to be at the Science Café.
