This is the list of the Departmental Seminars at the Department of Earth Sciences, on the Downing Site. This series covers a wide spectrum of topics of general interest to Earth Scientists. This series is complemented by a range of more specialist seminar series in Geophysics, Fluid Dynamics, Palaeontology, Mineral Physics, Geochemistry and Quaternary Studies that are fully or partly managed by the department.

The seminars will take place in the Tilley Lecture Theatre (Michaelmas Term) or Harker Seminar Room 1 (Lent and Easter Terms) at 4.30 pm after tea and biscuits at 4 pm in the common room.
