The Magic and Mysteries of Water
with Geri Richmond, University of Oregon http://richmondscience.uoregon.edu/

Water is ubiquitous in our world. Nearly 3/4 of the earth's surface is covered with water, and water constitutes 2/3 of the human body, delivering oxygen and nutrients to different parts of the body while removing toxins and waste. It regulates body temperature through perspiration, reduces friction between joints, and acts as a cushion between organs in order to protect them. We know a lot about what it does but continue to be perplexed by some of the most fundamental issues regarding how it carries out many of these important tasks. Join us for a conversation about the magic and mysteries of this elixir of life.

Professor Geri Richmond holds the Richard M. and Patricia H. Noyes Professorship in Chemistry at the University of Oregon. Richmond is recognized for her fundamental studies of molecular processes at water surfaces using state-of-the-art laser techniques. She has received numerous national and international awards honors for these studies with over 150 publications to her credit. Richmond is also known widely for her innovative science teaching and outreach efforts, particularly in developing science literacy courses, communicating science to the general public and encouraging more girls and women to follow science careers.
