EASC Seminar Series

The Earth Sciences Department hosts an ongoing seminar series in the Spring (Jan-Apr) and Fall (Sept-Dec) semesters of each year.

Speakers for the Spring EASC Seminar Series are nearly set (please see below). All talks, unless otherwise noted, are on Thursdays from 2:30-3:30 p.m. hosted online. Sorry - you'll have to supply your coffee and cookies until we return to in-person presentations!

If you are interested in giving a presentation to the department, please contact Dr Derek Thorkelson.
