Schedule Fall 2014

Atmospheric Sciences Informal Seminar Fall 2014

In the ASIS, we only allow interruptions that are to clarify a point that is required to understand the talk. This culture may differ from those in other seminars on campus. The reason why we established this policy is to encourage students to give talks in the ASIS that is joined with ATM688, a 1-credit class (see syllabus). If a seminar has a culture of permanent interruptions and discussion during the talk, it will be very unlikely that students will give talks and get the opportunity (and experience) to give a talk before their actual thesis defense. Students taking ATM688 do not have to attend seminars prior to the start or after the end of the semester. Students who plan to graduate next semester are encouraged to talks this seminar for credit and give a presentation so they gain experience in 45 minutes talks and a 15 minute discussion or so for their defense. Students will get valuable feedback for their defense preparation when they take this seminar for credit. It is also recommended to sign up for credit in this seminar in your last semester.
