Join us for the 61st KGS Annual Seminar!

Climate Change in Kentucky: A Geoscience Perspective

Thursday, May 12, 2022

Jacobs Science Building, University of Kentucky

We're excited to be back in-person for our Annual Seminar! This year, the seminar presentations will focus on climate change issues in Kentucky. General topics will include methane emissions, critical minerals, using Google Earth for statewide remote sensing analyses, soil health, and landscape evolution. In addition to oral presentations, we'll also have a poster session featuring KGS research and associated lightning talks.

The KGS annual seminar will be held in-person only in the Jacobs Science Building on the University of Kentucky campus. KGS will provide a free boxed lunch to attendees.

Registration is now closed!
