UAV Symposium

On Tuesday January 12th, the Utrecht Earth Science Study Association (UAV) organizes a symposium, themed:  ‘Climate Change in the Ocean: The Past, the Present and the Future’.  Five lecturers will discuss different aspects of climate change in the ocean, with the focus shifting from the past to the future. Among the speakers are two NESSC colleagues: Gert-Jan Reichart (NIOZ/UU) and Lucas Lourens (UU).

Coffee and tea will be served from 12.45 in the ‘sluis’ in the Koningsbergergebouw, next to room ‘Atlas’, where the lectures will take place. Tickets are available via this link.
