Brown Bag Seminars


The Geophysics Brown Bag seminar is an informal research seminar series. Presentation times are between 20 and 45 minutes, allowing plenty of time for discussion. Post-docs and students are particularly encouraged to present ongoing research projects. Previously completed work or discussions on a "hot topic" in your field (of general interest) are also welcomed. To present your research, email us or call (626) 395-6952.


Unless otherwise noted, seminars are held on Wednesdays at noon in the Benioff Conference Room (Rm. 256/258, 2nd floor South Mudd) - Directions to Lab). Soda will usually be provided.
