A special event celebrating 50 years of global leadership in geophysical research and discovery.
November 30, 2022
1:15 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Thank you to everyone who came to UTIG’s anniversary symposium, it was a great success! Old friends, new faces, and future scientists joined an afternoon of reflection, celebration and fun.
The program featured a history of UTIG presented by senior research scientists, Jamie Austin and Ian Dalziel, and short science talks that highlighted a new generation of geophysical researchers. The symposium concluded with a student poster session and reception.
