Geological and Environmental Sciences

Fall 2018

Please join us this fall for another exciting and informative GEOS Seminar Series. This semester we are trying something a bit different, with fewer speakers, and incorporating a catered or potluck get-together afterwards  so that students and faculty can meet with the speaker to continue the discussion about their talk. Dinner is open to all attendees. 

Time and Location (unless otherwise noted): Tuesdays, 4:00-4:50 PM in PHSC 202
