Oceanography Seminar

Wednesday, December 07, 2011

The Oceanography Seminar Series Resumes this Winter Quarter (2012). The theme is Interdisciplinary Oceanography with topics in all ocean science options and speakers from oceanography centers across the country and our own College of the Environment. The seminar is at 3:30 on Thursdays in the Foege Auditorium (S 060) in the Genome Science Building next to OSB. There is an associated graduate student / senior undergraduate student seminar (Oce 497E/506E) which will meet with the speaker on Friday after the seminar.
