Topic:

This semester we will read latest papers that potentially interest most people. Any topics of geophysics or even geology and geochemistry are welcome. We prefer to read the papers pubulished in Geology/GRL/Nature/NatureGeo/Science recently. Contact Daniel Bartz (d.bartz@wustl.edu) for more information or suggestions.

Location: Rudolph Hall, Room 184

Time: Monday 1:00pm
