Banse Seminar Series
The Banse Oceanography Seminar Series is named in honor of Dr. Karl Banse, who was recently named as a AAAS fellow, honored for his continuing work on the ecology of the plankton. This year's quarter-long seminar series is being held during Fall Quarter (2020), organized by Dr. Jodi Young. The series will be held on Wednesdays from 2:30 to 3:50. This year (Fall 2020) the seminars will be held remotely via zoom (https://washington.zoom.us/j/94709092371).
