Geomorphology Brown Bag - Fall 2003
Friday 12-1PM in ALS 3006
Our Neat Research Projects


Welcome Back Everyone!!

Once again, fall quarter will be all about YOU! Tell us what you did over the summer. Bring our new students up to speed on how cool your research is, and get feedback from our brown bag veterans.

Contrary to popular belief, powerpoint is not mandatory to present your research - we have an overhead projector and slide projector available as well. Or you can just talk. We can be good listeners.
