2007 Geodynamics Seminar

Dynamics of Continental Margins

Unlike previous interdisciplinary seminars we have run, this year we wish to include a focus on Marine Policy as part of the series. The list of attached speakers includes many earth scientists working on natural phenomenon along the continental margin that pose both hazards and opportunities for mankind (e.g. Gas Hydrates). Also on the list are some speakers that address these issues from a policy point of view.
