Geomorphology Round Table Seminar Series

Geomorphology Round Table - Winter 2016
Wilkinson 203 noon to 1 pm
Hot off the Press

This quarter we will discuss papers published in the previous 3 weeks.  Volunteer for a presentation slot, and pick a paper published within (about) 3 weeks of your session. It'll be fun! AAG has a nice list of journals related to geomorphology here ( to get you started.
