The observational seminar meets on Friday from 12:00-1:00 during the academic quarters, in Nierenberg Hall 400. The seminar is open to all. It is a forum for informal discussion of current literature on observational aspects of physical oceanography and for presentation of individual's work in progress. The subject matter for each quarter is determined by the participants, weighted towards the preferences of the enrolled students.
Reading each week is chosen to complement the topic. Normally the reading can be downloaded from UCSD's electronic reserves or directly from the journal. Readings that are not available electronically are placed in the NH reading room.
Enrolled students are expected to come prepared to participate in discussions and ask questions based on the reading material.
