Instructor: Julian Sachs
Office: OSB 521
Office Hours: By appointment (or just stop in)
Meeting Times and Locations
Thursdays at 3-5 PM (beginning 1/10/08)
Class Today (2/14) & Next Thurs (2/21)
Today I would like each of you to bring us up to date on your research. I would then like to work on the Final Report that I have started to put together, and discuss what each of your "chapters" should contain.
As of the beginning of class next week (2/21) I would like a near-final draft of our Final Report that we can put the finishing touches on during class if need be. Next week will be the last meeting of the class due to our Clipperton expedition.
If you have laptops please bring them to class today and next week so we can each be working on the Final Report document.
Thank you! See you this afternoon!
