Atmospheric Sciences Informal Seminar Spring 2010

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 culture is to encourage students to give talks in the ASIS and in spring the ASIS is joined with ATM688, a 1-credit class. 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.
