In this workshop, we will explore techniques and best practices for writing a research proposal in the sciences and engineering, from the beginning (the specific aims/objectives) to the middle (the research design and methods) to the very end (supplementary documents). We will look at examples of successful proposals and discuss the different techniques that can be used to effectively present... More >
Science at Cal Lecture - Assessing the potential impact of super‐eruptions: on society and the environment
Lecture | December 15 | 11 a.m.-1:30 p.m. | 100 Genetics & Plant Biology Building
Stephen Self, Department of Earth and Planetary Science
Rare, but extremely large, explosive super-eruptions Magnitude 8 and above have occurred throughout geologic time.
If a future super-eruption was predicted, what would, or could, society do? Preparation for such low probability but high consequence events is difficult to imagine, yet some modest early measures can be considered.
