Computational Geosciences Seminar, EARTH 310

Fridays, 12:30-1:30 in Mitchell 350/372

The speakers will talk about a wide range of Earth science problems, with an emphasis on numerical method and algorithmic development. We'll have 9 speakers from Jan. 12- Mar. 9, and 6 will be from the Bay Area. Students and faculty can sign up each week to meet with speakers. If you want 1 hr pass/fail credit, sign up for EARTH 310.
