Series: Geoscience COVID Impacts Study

This is the first of our Fall webinar series on best practices and adaptations to pandemic-related impacts. In this webinar, we hear from two recent geoscience graduates, one of which who was a post-doctoral fellow during the pandemic, and a professor emeritus about the strategies they used to overcome pandemic-related restrictions and impacts to their work and research activities. Our panelists also delve into the temporary and lasting impacts of the pandemic, new opportunities that have arisen as a result of the pandemic and provide insights on how to navigate restrictions and setbacks.

Our speakers are:

  • Dr. Arthur Sylvester, Professor Emeritus, Department of Earth Science, University of California, Santa Barbara
  • Dr. Curtis Walker, Project Scientist, Research Applications Laboratory, National Center for Atmospheric Research
  • Dr. Elizabeth (Libby) Ives, Geologist, Florence Bascom Geoscience Center, U.S. Geological Survey

Funding for this project is provided by the National Science Foundation (Award #2029570). The results and interpretation of the survey are the views of the American Geosciences Institute and not those of the National Science Foundation.
