Urban stalactites on a bridge

Date: March 1, 2021
Social Time: 7:00 pm
Meeting Time: 7:30 pm
Location: Remotely via video conferencing (link below)
Speaker: Lori Carter
Topic: Urban Stalactites


If you were on vacation and you were standing in a cave, it would be no surprise to you if you looked up and saw those beautiful cave formations called stalactites. But what if you were on your way to work, and you looked up and saw those beautiful cave formations called stalactites? How is that even possible? Lori Carter encountered stalactites in urban settings and sought the science to explain this mystery. In March she will tell us what she has learned about the geology and chemistry behind urban stalactites. You will be amazed at how ubiquitous these mysterious formations truly are.
