Geomorphology Brown Bag - Winter 2003
Friday 12-1PM in ALS 3006
Non-thesis related current literature

We'd like to get back to a literature-based seminar this winter - all that we ask is that you provide a paper to read one week in advance (pdf if possible) and come prepared with a short summary and questions to guide our discussion. Since last quarter focused on current research, we encourage non-thesis related topics this time around....
