Earth Systems Forum: Save the Date

On February 4 from 12:30 to 5 p.m. in the Photonics Center Colloquium Room, CAS will host a forum open to all interested faculty with the goals of providing the Boston University community the opportunity to learn about and discuss existing activities at BU related to the Earth's integrated physical, natural, and societal systems; to initiate the process of identifying core strengths and opportunities moving forward; and to develop a vision for research, teaching, and facilities related to Earth Systems at BU.

The Earth Systems Forum will begin with an informal buffet lunch and proceed with a set of brief presentations and discussions about different aspects of Earth Systems research and teaching represented at BU. At the end of the day, the forum will coordinate a series of follow-on break-out meetings among interested faculty focused on thematic clusters where BU has foundations for ongoing and future development. This series of activities will result in the development of a faculty-driven white paper providing a vision and planning statement for investment and development of research, facilities, and curricula at BU that build on the core strengths in the area of Earth Systems.
