Departmental seminars

We host two regular seminar series during term time, on Mondays at 1200 (normally an external speaker), and on Tuesdays at 1300 (often an internal speaker, such as a member of staff, postdoctoral researcher or PhD student); these are held in the Sutcliffe Lecture Theatre, room GU01, in the Meteorology Building. Subject to capacity limits, both series are open to all. Click on the links below for the latest seminar schedules. Occasional seminars outside of the regular schedules are normally announced via e-mail within the department.
