Fall Field Trip: Newfoundland
Aug 28 – Sep 4 all-day

We are pleased to announce an EAPS field trip to Newfoundland. The trip is open to all EAPS undergraduates and graduate students. Flights, lodging, and food will be included. The trip will run from August 28th – September 4th. During the trip we will be staying at hotels and motels as opposed to camping.

The trip will focus on the geology of Newfoundland and will cross three ancient continents with stops along the way including world-famous Ediacaran fossils, ophiolites and suture zones, Snowball Earth deposits, Quaternary glacial valleys and fjords.

Prior to the field trip each participant will be responsible for preparing materials on a particular topic and will present during the trip. There will be a 3 credit course everyone will enroll in for the Fall 2017 semester.

All undergraduates are particularly encouraged to join the trip and will have first priority on available spaces.

Faculty Instructors: Kristin Bergmann, Taylor Perron, Greg Fournier

Graduate Climate Conference 2017
Nov 10 – Nov 12 all-day

The goal of the Graduate Climate Conference (GCC) is to provide a discussion forum for graduate students undertaking research on climate and climate change in an array of disciplines throughout the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, and humanities. The format is designed to encourage new climate researchers to become acquainted with the details of diverse areas of study and to place their own work in the broader context of the climate research community.

The GCC will return to Cape Cod, Massachusetts for its 11th iteration in November 10-12, 2017. Historically, the responsibility for organizing the GCC has rotated between grad students from MIT and the University of Washington. This year’s conference will be a joint venture between students from the MIT Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences’ Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Important Dates: Applications open – April 24, 2017 | Application deadline – June 15, 2017
