Welcome to the UCLA Coastal Seminar, which is a weekly interdisciplinary and inter-group meeting.
The groups include people from physical,
biological, chemical and geological oceanography focusing
on coastal regions.  Broader interesting topics are also very welcome.

The seminar is also officially listed as a course as AOS 277.

Location: 7124B Math. Sciences Bldg.
Time: 11:00am-noon on Thursdays

If you have questions about the seminar, please contact Charles Dong (the current convener)
via my email: cdong@atmos.ucla.edu. Thanks!
