Geophysics isn’t Just a Study, It’s a Way of Life

Abstract:

A location is characterized by its people and culture, but Geophysics is not typically the first thing that comes to mind when describing the culture of a place.  Catherine will share perspective as a Geophysicist from a cultural and professional’s point of view how geophysics plays a key role in a location’s cultural  identity.
