The Deformation & Tectonics Talk Series

Let the science fly while we are all grounded



Lockdown is spreading the scientific community apart, leading to cancellation of all meetings, from local talks to international meetings, and for an unknown duration. The DeTect Talk Series aims at a weekly gathering of the international scientific community interested in various aspects of crustal deformation, to keep the scientific discussion alive.

Any suggestions for speakers are welcome!

As the virus seems to hit back through a second wave in many places in the wold, so do the Detect Talk Series with a new series of talks during the coming Fall. If you missed one of the Spring talks, or you wish to replay some of them, you can still enjoy the full collection of videos of the past talks by following the link attached to each talk annoucement.
Thanks again to all the speakers who agree to give some of their time during this weird period!

• During the time the DeTect Talk Series is running, every week I will post here a link and password to zoom meeting (free for viewing, multiplatform)

• If you intend to join, have a login that allows you to be fully identified

• The talk is every Thursday, starting at 3pm GMT/UTC sharp (check your local time here)
