ATOC 6020: Oceanography Seminar
Participation is not limited to enrolled students. All interested students (graduate and undergraduate), faculty, researchers, Boulder-area oceanographers, visitors, and alumni are encouraged to attend and present.You can access the syllabus, class notes and calendar, and reading.
Registered students are required to submit a writeup of each talk to me by Friday at 7PM on CULearn. The writeups should include 4 sections: summary, strengths, weaknesses, and brainstorming.
In CULearn you can also view other students' writeups and post comments to a discussion board.
The calendar of talks is below; it is also available as a public google calendar called "ATOC6020: Oceanography Seminar".
