Upcoming Seminars

The Earth and Planets Laboratory hosts free weekly scientific seminars most Mondays and Thursdays. The popular seminar series covers the broad range of topics studied on our campus and are presented by both guest speakers and Carnegie scientists. 

Note: These seminars are designed for a scientific audience and have limited space, so we are not advertising the Zoom links publically. However, you're still welcome to join! Just email Alycia Alexander (adalexander@carnegiescience.edu) for information on how to attend. If you are employed by Carnegie Science you will receive an email reminder and Zoom link automatically.
