SC CSC Booth at Women in Science Conference
Staff from the South Central CSC had a great time at the Oklahoma EPSCoR 2015 Women in Science Conference earlier this week! Through a hands-on activity, the SC CSC introduced participants to dendrochronology; the science of analyzing tree growth ring patterns. This data can be used to reconstruct what the Earth's past climate was like while the tree was growing.
