Geoscience Seminar

The Geoscience seminar includes a series of speakers who present research on a wide range of topics relevant to the Geosciences department (Geology, Geography, Geoecology).  Speakers are asked to give talks that provide a general background on their methods and problem addressed before presenting more detailed current research.  This approach makes the seminar topics accessible to a wide range of people with diverse backgrounds.  The seminar speakers include a mixture of international invited speakers as well as students and doctoral students within the department presenting an update on their current research. 

 

The seminar is organised by the students and staff of the Earth System Dynamics Research Group.

It is also cosponsored by TGAG (Tübinger Gesellschaft für Angewandte Geowissen­schaften e.V.).
