Geosciences seminars

The Department maintains an outstanding seminar program with invited speakers of international stature, which enables our graduate students to interact with leaders and innovators in their fields. DGSE seminars are open to the local and University geoscience community eager to learn about the latest topics in geological science and engineering research.

Spring 2022 seminar schedule

All seminars are on Monday at 4 p.m. and will be conducted either in-person in LME 425 or virtually over Zoom in Spring 2022. In-person talks will also be broadcast over Zoom, and live attendance will be limited to allow for proper social distancing. Flyers with titles and abstracts are typically distributed about one week before the talk. Please email the Department to be added to the announcement distribution list. If you do not wish to be on the distribution list but want to receive the Zoom link for a talk, you may also email Mike Darin to receive the link.
