"The Forum has been established on an informal basis since March 2005 The Softrock Forum is a monthly medium for the discussion of work in progress at Memorial relating to soft-rock geoscience in its broadest sense.
The Forum has now been adopted by the Department of Earth Sciences as a departmental seminar series.
The aim of the Forum is primarily to increase inter-disciplinary interaction between MUN faculty and students but is also open to local industry and government to come and see "research in progress" from what is a growing body of softrock-related workers at MUN.
We particularly encourage speakers (both faculty and student) to come with new or problematic datasets or new ideas and concepts. The environment is one of collegial helpfulness.
The Forum takes place once a month from 16:00-17:00 in the last week of the month. The format consists of two, half hour, talks (one by a student followed by one from a member of faculty).
After the talks we generally retire to Bitters Bar in Field Hall to have a beer or two, continue discussion and socialise.
Feel free to drop in and join us whenever your schedule permits- we won't even be offended if you can only come for a beer.
Talks will be advertised through this website, or to receive reminder e-mails drop a note to:
Softrock Forum Coordinator:
