Magnetosphere Seminars

Below is a schedule of the informal LASP Friends of the Magnetosphere (FOM) Seminars for the Fall 2017 semester. LASP holds a series of informal seminars focused on space physics and plasma research relating to the magnetospheres of Earth and other planets. The intended audience is space and planetary physics researchers in the Boulder area, although in most instances any interested persons are welcome to attend. For more information or if you have questions, please contact David.Malaspina at lasp.colorado.edu.

View the Address and Directions page for detailed directions to any of the LASP locations.
