Geomorphology Brown Bag - Fall 2011
Tuesday 12 - 1 pm in ALS 3096
Tell us what you've been up to!


Welcome back to Geomorphology brownbag!

Although brownbag took a summer vacation, chance is your research didn't. Fall quarter we provide a forum for constructive feedback on advances in student (and faculty) research in geomorphology. There won't necessarily be papers to read, but we do ask that the presenters come prepared with something to engage our attention (maps/data/handouts/photos/video clips, etc...). You can provide an article in advance for us to discuss that is relevant to your research. Or you can just talk. We can be good listeners.
