Planetary Journal Club- Spring 2009

The Planetary Journal Club is generally on Fridays at noon, at the Duane Conference Room D-142. The speaker of Journal Club leads a ~30 minute informal discussion on a planetary topic, basing the discussion on a recently published paper or papers. Contact Nicole Albers or Keiji Ohtsuki (firstname.lastname@lasp.colorado.edu) for more information.
