Event Details

Join Dr. Donald Lowe from Stanford University for a presentation on The Late Heavy Bombardment. Lowe will explore large-scale meteorite bombardment of the Earth and discuss when it declined to the present-day low level based on evidence from 3.4-3.2 billion-year-old rocks of the Archean Barberton region of South Africa.

Dr. Don Lowe, Dept. of Geological & Environmental Sciences at Stanford University, enjoys the historical aspects of geology, looking back in time to explore past events and ancient life. His research employs the techniques of sedimentary geology and geochemistry to explore the Earth’s earliest surface environments, life, and crustal development, generally before 2.5 billion years ago. Much of this research is focused in South Africa and Western Australia.
