On Tuesday, Oct. 16 at 6 p.m., the University of Arizona College of Science will be hosting UA Science Café. This installation of the Cafe is titled ‘The Race for Ground Water-A Shrinking Resource’ and is held at Magpies Gourmet Pizza on Fourth Ave.
Presented by Jen McIntosh, associate professor for UA Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, the talk will bring the community together to talk about the competition and shrinking supply of the last deep groundwater resources in the United States.
Barbara Sherwood Lollar, a prominent scientist from the University of Toronto who discovered deep, billion-year-old water resources in the earth’s crust and the microbial life that lives there will be highlighted at the talk.
The Science Café at Magpies Gourmet Pizza series features leading female researchers from the University of Arizona who work in a variety of fields. Each presenter will reference a female researcher who came before them in their field, who inspired them at a time when few women were able to pursue a career in scientific research.
Science Cafés teach the latest research that is being conducted and allow all to come and interact with the faces behind the science. There are five different café series at five different locations in Tucson.
