Current Research in EEPS: Dr. Clara Chan, University of Delaware   Microbes rust the Earth: how iron-oxidizing bacteria thrive and drive biogeochemical cycles Fe(II)-oxidizing microorganisms (FeOM) gain energy by Fe(II) oxidation, in the process fixing carbon, cycling nitrogen, and forming highly reactive Fe(III) oxyhydroxides that strongly bind phosphate, metals, and organic carbon. To unravel the environmental influence of FeOM, we have integrated field studies with culture, ‘omic, and biochemical investigations. I will discuss what we’ve learned about the mechanisms of…

Current Research in EEPS: Dr. Marisa Palucis, Dartmouth College How much water does it take to build a fan on a cold and wet Mars? Alluvial fans may represent one of the last widespread signs of significant fluvial activity on Mars' surface. Understanding the climatic conditions during the formation of these features may provide key insights on habitability and climate change on Mars. Numerous studies have used data and theory from terrestrial fans from warm, arid, rainfall-dominated climates to estimate…
