Planetary Journal Club – Fall 2012

The Planetary Journal Club is a Friday lunch seminar (noon; Duane 142) where we informally discuss recently published papers on a planetary topic. So bring your lunch and listen to what’s new in the literature. For more information or to sign up for the mailing list please contact Nicole Albers (firstname.lastname@lasp.colorado.edu).
