Geology talks are given each year by various presenters. If you enter after the start of the talk, please try to enter as quietly as possible and avoid walking in front of the slide projector. The list of talks is preliminary and will be updated as additional talks are confirmed, so check back for updates.

If you have any questions regarding Geology talks, or if you have a suggestion for a possible speaker, contact Megan Anderson.
