Tree-Ring Day: Grads!

Monday, March 27, 2017

As part of EarthWeek 2017 events, graduate students at the Tree-Ring Lab have organized a mini-conference, showcasing some of their work. We invite you to join us as we share our unique research during this year’s EarthWeek activities. This year, students affiliated with the LTRR present their diverse and exciting research with talks and poster presentations. Join us Tuesday, March 28, from 9:00-2:30 for graduate student talks at the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research (Bryant Bannister Tree-Ring Building, Room 110). The following day, Wednesday, March 29, be sure to come out and support Dr. Ross Alexander as he represents the LTRR in the plenary session.
