Science Cafe: 'Hydrogeology of the Quitobaquito and Gran Desierto Wetlands: Insights From Environmental Isotopes and Water Chemistry'

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 - 6:00pm

Hector A. Zamora, Ph.D student in the Department of Geosciences, will present "Hydrogeology of the Quitobaquito and Gran Desierto Wetlands: Insights from Environmental Isotopes and Water Chemistry."

This project is a cross-border, multi-institution collaboration and seeks to establish the sources and recharge dynamics of these desert wetlands through a regional sampling regime and environmental isotope analysis. Our results will provide the science needed to manage the biological and cultural wetland resources of Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and the El Pinacate and Gran Desierto de Altar Biosphere Reserve.
