Geophysics Seminar (Fall 2012)

Time: Wednesday 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Location: EPSc 333

The theme in this semester is "Attenuation and its relationship with mantle properties". We will discuss some classic papers as well as latest researches from seismological, experimental, and geodynamical perspectives.

You are more than welcome to contribute to the reference list.

Contact Shawn Wei (songqiaowei@wustl.edu) for more information.
