We designed this seminar class to supplement the more formal classes offered in the Joint Program. Each year, we read and discuss classic and new papers from an important topic in Paleoceanography and Paleoclimatology. Because the typical graduate student is in the JP for approximately 5 years, we return to some key topics every 5 or so years. Some topics are covered more frequently, often with a change in focus from a previous year.
Each week, a graduate student leads the discussion of an important paper. The links on the left indicate some of our more recent topics. The bibliographies are available as links on the right.
Detailed information is only available to individuals who have access to internal WHOI sites. If you do not have access and would like to know what we are reading, please contact one of the instructors, who would be glad to provide it.
