Industry-Rice Earth Science Symposia (IRESS) 2018

The third annual IRESS will explore whole earth systems and carbon.  The schedule is as follows:

February 22

AM: Carbon cylcing over different timescales

PM: Biogeochemical perspective

February 23

AM: New technologies

PM: Energy, economics, and environment

The energy industry and academia have overlapping research interests in many Earth Science topics, and both groups stand to benefit from symbiotic interactions. Based on this premise, the Department of Earth Science at Rice University is initiating a two-day series of annual symposia, titled the "Industry-Rice Earth Science Symposia." The format seeks to engage all participants to promote the exchange of information and knowledge on issues at the forefront of Earth Science research, in particular those that relate to energy. This will be developed through a program of keynote lectures, group discussions, and poster presentations, with participation open to all academic and industry scientists.
