The Carl Heiland Lecture Series takes place every Wednesday at 4:00 PM during the fall and spring semesters.  Each week, we are joined by a distinguished speaker from academia, industry, or government on a topic pertinent to the geosciences. The lecture series is a public event open to all members of the Mines community and beyond.

We are excited to announce that the Heiland Lecture will be available remotely this fall, both for the safety of our speakers and attendees, and to enable you to see each lecture from wherever you are in the world.  The schedule is posted, below; watch for more information, including abstracts and links to tune in.
