Chemistry and Biochemistry News

many cranes near water

Chemistry faculty member, Dr. George Lauterbach, is spending Spring Break visiting Tombstone, AZ to see the migrating Sand Hill Cranes.  These large cranes winter in southeast Arizona and migrate in huge flocks to the far reaches of northern Canada and into Siberia for breeding. The picture of the mass of birds shows about 2000 of them hanging out near a pond to rest up and begin their long trek. The close-ups show them in some detail. The red part on the head are not feathers but the skin on their head.

Guinness beer, which is great to drink on St. Patrick's day, also serves as a great lesson in Chemistry. Happy St. Patrick's Day from the SOS Chemistry Department! We hope everyone is enjoying a great start to Spring Break 2019!
