The traditional university science curriculum was designed to train specialists in specific disciplines. However, in universities all over the world, science students are going into increasingly diverse careers and the current model does not fit their needs. Advances in technology also make certain modes of learning obsolete.
The Office of Research is hosting a workshop to help faculty learn how to navigate the broad research landscape, and develop a dynamic research strategy. A variety of topics will be covered such as: grant writing, research ethics, funding strategies, and intellectual property.
UN-Water's World Water Day tackles the water crisis by addressing the reasons why so many are being left behind. On this day, the Water Institute will join thousands from around the world in solidarity as we support and amplify World Water Day events and initiatives.
WATROX and ESGA invite you to an Earth and Environmental Sciences student prof night. Come to the Grad House to meet your profs and have some complimentary snacks.
Clays, Faults and Orogeny
Dr. Ben van der Pluijm
Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Michigan
Newly-formed, illitic clays are common in foreland fold-thrust belts, and the ages of fault-zone mineralization allow first-order constraints on the timing of regional deformation, fault weakening and fluid pathways. We briefly discuss our method of authigenic clay characterization and analysis, and focus on Ar-encapsulation dating.
Interaction of Phosphate and Silicate with Iron Oxides in Freshwater Environments
GAC Howard Street Robinson Medal Lecture: The Precambrian Secrets of Yukon
Department of Earth Sciences, Simon Fraser University
Most geologists in Canada regard the Canadian Cordillera as a Phanerozoic orogen consisting of fold belts and accreted terranes rich in precious and base metal deposits, and flanked by the modern Cascadia subduction zone. To the surprise of many, the orogen also preserves a rich Precambrian history that spans over a quarter of Earth history.
A Field Study of Even Based, Seasonally Effected Depression Focused Recharge in Glaciated Terrain
Join the Earth Sceicne Graduate Association (ESGA) for a fun afternoon of curling and costumes at Westmount Golf & Curling Club. All levels of players are welcome. Equipment and orientation will be provided.
Networking is a key skill that gives students the opportunity to connect with professionals in their fields of interest.
CSEG DISTINGUISHED LECTURE TOUR: An Unconventional View of Geoscience
Dr. David Gray
Sr. Geophysical Advisor, Global Exploration, Nexen
Shale oil and gas production and “fracking” are with us to stay. We geoscientists need to understand how we can contribute to the “shale revolution.”
This full-day event offered by GRADventure, the Library, the Writing and Communication Centre and other campus partners will offer graduate students and postdoctoral fellows an overview of the world of academic publishing.
Calling all Science graduate students. Attend the GSA Science Town Hall to share your opinions and concerns regarding graduate advisors/supervisors, TA experience, tuition and student services.
A Structural and Stratigraphic study in Liuyuan Area, southern Beishan Orogenic Collage, Northwest China
Visit us on Wednesday, March 13th for some March Break dinosaur fun beginning at 1:00 P.M. The program is free and all ages are welcome!
Faculty members, Research staff, Safety Office staff, Research Ethics staff, and Information Systems & Technology staff involved in research using biological, chemical, radiological, or nuclear materials or technology are invited to join Public Safety Canada (PSC) for the Safeguarding science workshop.
In this workshop for Science students, you will learn how to showcase your assets for high-impact results. Through analyzing job postings, you will gain the skills to build effective bullet points that help you stand out to employers – and get that interview!
Tulu Kapi Gold Deposit, Western Ethiopian Shield: Structural Framework, U-Pb Zircon Geochronology and Paragenesis
Aquatic Greenhouse Gas Emissions in a Changing World
Dr. Tonya DelSontro
Department F.-A. Forel for Environmental and Aquatic Science; Faculty of Science
University of Geneva, Switzerland
It is now widely known that inland waters (i.e., lakes, reservoirs and rivers) emit significant amounts of greenhouse gases (GHG; i.e., CO2, CH4, N2O) – one aspect of the role inland waters play in climate change and in the global carbon cycle.
Calling all water entrepreneurs! AquaHacking is an innovative, multi-stage pitch competition challenging students to tackle water issues facing our Great Lakes. AquaHacking provides mentoring, a unique experience and financial support to help you bring your idea to life!
Anthropogenic changes to inland water nutrient cycles: sky to sea
Dr. Taylor Maavara
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
Rivers are the great connectors of the freshwater cycle, providing essential services to humans and ecosystems, including drinking water, transportation channels, food security, waste assimilation, and water purification.
