ESRL Physical Sciences Division Seminars 2019

The PSD Seminar Series is typically held bi-weekly at 11:00 a.m. on Thursdays and features a mix of internal and external speakers. The goal of the series is to facilitate collaboration between PSD and external scientists. The series is co-sponsored by partners at CIRES.

If you have any questions about the series, or are interested in presenting a seminar, please contact the coordinators at:

VISITORS: Please read the site security procedures, if you are interested in attending a seminar.
