Dr. Mark Thomson, Professor of Physical Science at Ferris State University in Michigan, will lead an interactive discussion about the natural and sociological disaster of Hurricane Katrina, at 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, December 11th, in the Alma McDonough Auditorium. Hurricane Katrina impacted the U.S. Gulf Coast in the fall of 2005. The discussion will also touch on the abundance of interesting and at times frustrating, chemical and biological problems and investigations that followed after the storm. This event is sponsored by the American Chemical Society Upper Ohio Valley Section.
