Earth Surface Dynamics Seminars

The Earth Surface Dynamics seminar series aims to bring together the broad range of researchers on Telegrafenberg looking at Earth surface processes (e.g., hydrology, geochemistry, geobiology,  geochemical/carbon cycling, geomorphology) about once a month. The aim for these talks is to be broad and accessible and to cover globally-relevant topics, so that non-experts and specialists alike can find them enlightening.
