Journal’s Club

Coordinator: Miguel Nogueira
Programme 2016

Journal’s Club is an informal weekly scientific meeting where the Earthsystems PhD program students present, review and discuss relevant articles from all earth sciences topics. The main goal is to broaden the scientific discussions, contributing to a wider view of the earth sciences as a whole, within a more comprehensive and multidisciplinary intellectual environment. It also allows the students to practice their ability to present and discuss varied science topics in public, with the help of more experienced researchers.
