      Dr. David Blake of NASA developed the Chemistry and Mineralogy instrument for the Mars Curiosity rover. He will report on the mission including the discovery and characterization of the first habitable environment on Mars.

      The CheMin instrument (short for “Chemistry and Mineralogy”) on the Mars Science Laboratory rover Curiosity is one of two “laboratory quality” instruments on board the Curiosity rover that is exploring Gale crater, Mars. CheMin is an X-ray diffractometer that has for the first time returned definitive and fully quantitative mineral identifications of Mars soil and drilled rock. He will describe CheMin’s 23-year development from an idea to a spacecraft qualified instrument, and report on some of the discoveries that Curiosity has made since its entry, descent and landing on Aug. 6, 2012, including the discovery and characterization of the first habitable environment on Mars.

      December 5 “Modeling Modesto’s Groundwater”

      The natural complexities of geology combined with a variety of human actions affect surface- and groundwater resources, and their interactions. A hydrologic model of the Modesto region was developed to better understand these natural and human influences, and to provide a tool for exploration of potential effects of changes in future land uses and hydrologic conditions. This tool can be used to evaluate the relative effectiveness of water management alternatives prior to constructing expensive infrastructure. Subsurface geologic variability and processes associated with irrigated agriculture were both emphasized in the development of this hydrologic model.


      Steven Phillips has been a Hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey for 29 years. His primary experience and interests involve using simulation models to better understand hydrologic systems and developing tools to help manage these systems. Most of his career has been spent addressing issues related to irrigated agriculture, artificial recharge, land subsidence, and associated water supply issues in the San Joaquin and Antelope Valleys, California. Recently, he has worked with the Stanislaus and Tuolumne Rivers Groundwater Basin Association and other local entities to develop a hydrologic model of the Modesto region.
