Home » Events » HOW CAN THE EARTH PREPARE US FOR MARS?

This lecture by Mary Bourke, professor in the Department of Geography, Trinity College Dublin, will explore how extreme environments on Earth help us understand Mars and other terrestrial bodies in our solar system. Mary is a member of the curatorial panel for the LIFE AT THE EDGES exhibition, which will be running in Science Gallery Dublin during the Alumni Weekend. 

Mary Bourke is director of the Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Group and professor at Department of Geography in Trinity College Dublin. Her research interests lie in the area of extremes and her goal is to better understand geomorphic processes in extreme environments (deserts on Earth and on Mars) and during extreme events (like floods or mass wasting).
