Climate Seminar Series

It is our pleasure to announce a new informal seminar series focused on climate research.

The Climate Seminars are scheduled biweekly on Mondays, 4:00-5:00 p.m., in Guyot Hall, Room 220.

The format of the seminar presentations may vary, but common to all seminars is that we wish to foster dialogue and discussion, and that raising questions during the seminar is explicitly welcome. We also hope that following the seminar interested parties may head to town to continue the discussions well into the evening.
