About the Speaker Series

Earth Talks Speaker Series is hosted each semester by the Geoscience Department.

The series serves as a forum through which experts from academia, government and the private sector, as well as WSU students and faculty, share their experiences and research results with the WSU Geoscience community.

The series also provides a venue for discussions of professional, educational, and employment issues related to Geology, Natural Resources, Earth Science teaching, and other related disciplines.
