The Institute Seminar is open for all students and working groups of the geosciences. Its aim is to make new research results accessible to a wide audience. To strenghten the listeners and the communication within the institute, bretzels and drinks will be offered afterwards.

The lectures take place Tuesdays at 14.15 h in lecture room N6.
