  • Elizabeth Swanner, Assistant Professor in the Geologic and Atmospheric Sciences Department, received two new grants this fall:

    The first is an Iowa Space Grant Early Career Investigator Research Program (ECIRP) grant that will build a collaboration with Los Alamos National Laboratory. The enrichment of manganese and other metals into lake sediments on Earth will be used to help better interpret the geological and possible microbial history archived on the surface of Mars. This ECIRP will likely fund an undergraduate and provide a unique research experience!
