State University of New York at Albany, Department of Geological Sciences

Geological Sciences Visiting Speaker Seminar Series

This seminar series was run continuously since 1975 for the enrichment of the graduate program in Geological Sciences, and the benefit of professional geoscientists in the New York Capital District. The series was started by Kevin Burke, one of many contributions he made to improve and sustain the Geological Sciences program at Albany while he was  Chairman from 1973-1983.
(from Spring 1995, run jointly with Geological Sciences, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute - continued list here)
