A Geophysicist's Guide to Interpreting Science and Life
The Earth is a big, beautiful, and complicated place. Most people only get to appreciate a small fraction of the Earth (its surface) during a relatively short period of time (a human lifetime). Geophysics is a broad field of study that often focuses on parts of the Earth that humans have never traveled to, during time periods long before humans existed. Answering geophysical questions involves imagination and creativity, as well as critical reasoning. In this talk, you will learn about a 2nd year geophysics PhD student’s experience learning how to make responsible conclusions while dealing with uncertainty in scientific data (and in life).
