ATLANTA – Jennifer Glass is a new assistant professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. Joining Georgia Tech, she plans to figure out how the world works through geochemistry and environmental microbiology.
Jennifer Glass: We’re studying microbes in the environment. We’re interested in how they influence chemical cycling and how this is important for global biogeochemical cycles.
Researchers now have stronger evidence of granite on Mars and a new theory for how the granite – an igneous rock common on Earth -- could have formed there, according to a new study. The findings suggest a much more geologically complex Mars than previously believed.
