Every year the Institute for Operations Research & Management Science (INFORMS) holds a competition ‘to honor a student or group of students who conducted a significant applied project in operations research or management science, and/or important theoretical or applied research in operations research or management science, while enrolled as an undergraduate student.’ Participants submit their works from all around the globe, making this an international technical competition.

Serpentinization... Microbial life in high pH fluids

Melitza Crespo-Medina's picture

Serpentinization is the process in which the mineral olivine reacts with water and gets transformed to serpentinite. The process creates a high pH fluid enriched in electron donors and acceptors that can be used by microorganisms for food and energy source, although living in these serpentinizing fluids represent challenges to the cell. 

The mineral olivine is abundant in ultramafic rocks, rocks that are representative of the uper mantle. At Ophiolites these ultramafic rocks are uplifted and are exposed obove sea level in continents. Thus, serpentinization can ocurr at the sea floor, but also at these continental ophiolites.
