The Search for Water on Mars with Nadine Barlow
The Hal Marcus College of Science and Engineering is honored to host Nadine Barlow, Professor of Physics and Astronomy at Northern Arizona University, for a specially distinguished lecture on April 6 -7, 2017.
Dr. Barlow’s research of impact craters on Mars informs her ongoing contributions to the search for Martian water. That research also informs our understanding of Mars’s climate history, while providing insights into Earth’s own climate: past and future.
Dr. Nadine Barlow is an astrophysicist with Northern Arizona University (NAU) and the joint Northern Arizona University-NASA Space Grant program. Dr. Barlow holds the rank of Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at NAU in Flagstaff, AZ, where she is also Associate Chair.
She is a member of multiple scientific societies, including:
- American Astronomical Society, Division for Planetary Sciences
- The American Geophysical Union, Planetology Section
- Geological Society of America, Planetary Geology Division
- The International Astronomical Union
- Sigma Xi
- The Committee on Undergraduate Research
In addition to her scientific accomplishments, Dr. Barlow is recognized for her accomplishments mentoring research students: she was named NAU’s Most Effective Research Mentor in 2011 and was named a Most Influential Faculty for my mentorship of NAU undergraduate research award recipients in 2013.
She is the author of Mars: An Introduction to its Interior, Surface and Atmosphere (Cambridge Planetary Science, 2008)
