Earth Sciences Lunch and Learn Seminar Series
In order to expose students to a wider variety of topics in the Earth Sciences, a seminar series is offered on Tuesdays at noon during the academic year. We schedule a broad spectrum of speakers ranging from attorneys, consultants, faculty from Dickinson and elsewhere, current students and department alumni to give informal talks about their research, careers, internships, field camps, graduate school, and study abroad experiences. These talks are a chance to come together as a department and explore the Earths Sciences outside of the classroom. Listed below is the schedule for this semester's seminar talks:
