Robert M. Hazen
The Story of Earth: How Life and Rocks Have Co-Evolved

The story of Earth is a 4.5-billion-year saga of dramatic transformations driven by physical, chemical and biological processes. The co-evolution of life and rocks unfolded in an irreversible sequence of evolutionary stages. Each stage re-sculpted our planet’s surface; introduced new planetary processes and phenomena; and inexorably paved the way for the next.

Robert M. Hazen is staff scientist at the Carnegie Institution of Washington and Clarence Robinson Professor of Earth Sciences at George Mason University. With degrees from MIT and Harvard, he studies mineral evolution and the coevolution of the geosphere and biosphere.

Lecture: 3-4 PM is followed by a free, informal reception from 4-5 PM in the Ohio Union Ohio Staters Traditions Room.

Parking is free at meters across High St at 13th Ave. We may go for drinks/pizza after.
