I would like to draw your attention to a symposium to be held at MIT next Tuesday that will be of interest to many of you. It is the Earth Systems Initiative/Center for Global Change Science symposium titled Earth System Revolutions: Key Turning Points in the History of our Planet at 8:30am, Tuesday October 9, 2007 in 10-250. You may view more about it here.
There is one talk that all of you should try to attend. It is at 10:45 and is by one of the world's experts in fishery issues, Daniel Pauly. He has an interesting website that you should check out. The title of his talk on Tuesday is: Fisheries and Global Warming: Impacts on Marine Ecosystems and Food Security.
Paul Rago's lecture is here. Part 1, 2, and 3. Note that these are BIG files and take time to download.
Informal Get together: There will be an informal Student-Mentor get-together on Friday, September 28, from 4 PM to 6 PM in the Terrascope room in Bldg. 16 (across from 16-177). Sam and Mariela and Maria will be there as well. This will be an excellent time to get to know your team and to meet with the staff. It would be nice if each of us would spent a minute or two introducing ourselves, talking about backgrounds and interests and why we are interested in working with the students in 12.000 (or whatever else you think is appropriate).
GIS HELP SESSIONS: There has been some confusion about the extra GIS help sessions. In order to accommodate as many students as possible, we are changing the schedule of the remaining extra GIS sessions to: Wednesday 7-9 PM and Friday 7-9 PM | NO THURSDAY SESSION. Note that the sessions are held in 37-312.
It is highly recommended you attend one or both of these sessions. They will help you with your current GIS assignments, and will allow you to make observations crucial to the solution of the mini-project you will be working on for the next few weeks. GIS will also be a invaluable resource for the class project as the semester goes on. Daniel Sheehan will be there to help you.
GIS Session Handout #1, updated with assignment details and instructions for using the Building 37 cluster.
The topics and locations for classes September 12-21 are included in this Powerpoint® presentation.
