Lamont Weekly Report, March 14, 2008

The Geoscience and Microbiology mini symposium on Monday was successful in content, but was not well attended so we still have work to do to spread the word about the important new research opportunities in this field. Thanks to Howard Shuman and his steeringcommittee for putting this together.

Thursday was consumed by an EI Academic Committee in the morning followed by a meeting with the Liberty Science Center leadership and the President of Montclair State University to discuss possible cooperation in education initiatives.

And the week ended with another marathon ExCom and a superb colloquium by Karen von Damm focused upon one of my old hunting grounds - the East Pacific rise at 9N.

Langseth is transiting the Panama Canal this weekend - it could be two years before she is again in the Atlantic...

Have a great weekend.
