Physical Sciences Laboratory Seminars 2021

The PSL Seminar Series is typically held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday's and features a mix of internal and external speakers. The goal of the series is to facilitate collaboration between PSL and external scientists. The series is co-sponsored by partners at CIRES.

These seminars are currently only held virtually. Connection information can be found on the individual announcements. If you have any questions about the series or would like to be added to our email list, please contact the coordinators at: psl.seminars@noaa.gov.
