This Week's Thursday Night Sevilleta Summer Seminar Speaker - Vyoma Nenuji
This week the Sevilleta summer seminar speaker is Vyoma Nenuji. Vyoma Nenuji is a PhD student in geology at New Mexico Tech. She earned an M.S. in 2008 from Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, where she studied ichnofacies and lithofacies in the Kutch District of Gujarat, India. Her research now focuses on the formation of calcic horizons in soils in semi-arid environments and looking at their hydrologic properties, and her work at the Sevilleta LTER has been on the influence of pedogenic carbonate on the physical and hydrologic properties of a semi-arid soil. The Sevilleta LTER project is intended to determine the nature and magnitude of changes in the hydrologic properties of arid soils with increasing amounts of pedogenic calcium carbonate.
Talks are at the UNM Sevilleta Field Station - SERF Conference Room (The first conference room on your left if you enter from the front entrance or from the side entrance facing the field station.)
Time: 6 p.m.

Driving Directions to the Station:
Driving Directions to the Station: The UNM Sevilleta Field Station is located - on South I-25, Exit 169 (50 min. south of ABQ, 20 min. north of Socorro) After you exit the interstate, you will turn WEST at the stop sign. Follow the paved road all the way up and you'll see a small brown sign on the right - that directs you to the UNM Sevilleta Field Station. (As you pass from a paved to gravel road, the Fish & Wildlife Visitor Center should be on your Left - if it is not - you are on the wrong road). SERF Conference Room is located in the Sevilleta Education and Research Facility. This building is the first Large building you will see after you pass from the paved to gravel road.
Hope to see you there!
