An interdisciplinary seminar presented by UNC-CH Department of Marine Sciences graduate student, Adam Rok. Seminar Title: Xenobiotic Contamination: Pharmaceuticals in the World’s Waters Abstract: Every year more pharmaceutical products are consumed by the world’s population, but where do all of these biologically active compounds end up? In the last 20 years, studies have shown that these compounds are accumulating in water systems, including ground water, lakes, rivers and estuaries. These chemicals are foreign to the natural aquatic environment, making them xenobiotics. Once in…

Interdisciplinary Seminar: Andrew Hyde

April 26 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Methane hydrates are a type of ice that has trapped methane molecules. It is estimated that there may be 1500 gigatons (1015 g) of carbon trapped in methane hydrates in the sediments of the world’s continental margins. This volume of methane gas is equal to the volume of the Mediterranean Sea under standard conditions; providing a tremendous amount of potential energy to the ~106 microbial cells/cm3 found in hydrate sediments. This seminar explores the interplay between these rich microbial communities and this large methane reservoir.
