The University of Oregon’s School of Law’s Environmental and Natural Resources Law Program, along with the University of Oregon’s Environmental Studies Program, continues its “Earth on Fire: A Series of Fireside Conversations on Global Warming,” 2007-2008 series with a talk by Oregon Geological Sciences Professor Kathy Cashman who will speak on “Geologic Perspectives on Paleoclimate.”
Cashman studies how volcanoes erupt and why eruption styles vary from effusive to explosive. In studying the topic, she examines the products of eruptions, their textures, compositions and physical properties. Prior to joining Oregon’s faculty in 1991, Cashman was an assistant professor at Princeton University. She earned a Ph.D. at Johns Hopkins University, a master’s degree in science at Victoria University in New Zealand, and a bachelor’s degree in geology/biology at Middlebury College.
The event will take place Wednesday, April 9, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., in the Many Nation’s Longhouse adjacent to the School of Law. It is free and open to all members of the University community.
