Seminar info and schedule

For the autumn semester 2015 we'll focus our reading and discussions on the interactions of climate and tectonic processes. This discussion will start with considering their interactions at a global scale and likely move to case studies from individual orogens. Seminars will take place at 12-13.30 in room D501 of the Exactum. You may also want to see more information about the general format of the seminar.

 A tentative schedule of readings is below.
