Discover secrets of caves at TU event

THOMASVILLE — Darrel M. Tremaine journeys into the depths of caves to discover the secrets hidden there about the earth’s climate.

A graduate research assistant in Geochemistry at the High Magnetic Laboratory at Florida State University, Tremaine studies the crystalline matrix of karstic calcite cave formations known as speleothems. From these formations, he can discover ancient weather patterns.

 Tremaine will share his adventures during the next installment of Thomas University’s Science Café series when he presents “Climate sleuthing in caves” at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25, in the Flowers Foods Executive Classroom inside Smith-Bonvillian Hall on TU’s Main Campus.

 He holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Cincinnati and a Master of Science Degree in Chemical Oceanography from FSU. He is currently pursuing a doctorate in Chemical Oceanography at FSU with a research interest in paleoclimatology.

 The Science Café is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to a pre-event reception at 6 p.m. inside the lobby of Smith-Bonvillian Hall. For more information, contact April D. Penton at
