Coffee Hour

Coffee Hour has been a central part of the Seismo Lab for many decades. It serves as a way for us to learn from each other while we remain informed about current geophysical events. Also our format has taken on a new look with a number of clusters of chairs and tables for folks to nucleate around. This new setting brings people together for more frequent discussions on a wide range of topics and fosters discussion and collaborations between researchers with different perspectives and expertise

Countless new ideas have emerged from our daily informal gatherings. It has been a way to share observations of recent earthquakes and associated phenomena.

Coffee Hour begins between 9:30 and 10:00 am in the Benioff Conference Room. Coffee and cookies provided.
