For the spring of 2017 we'll discuss divergent plate margins, including the formation of rifts, their propagation, and their evolution.

Seminars will take place at 12-14 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.
