Join the BCGS on September 19 for a day field trip to Vancouver Island!
Participants will attend a behind the scenes tour of the Pacific Geoscience Center followed by a geophysical seminar at the University of Victoria. The day will conclude with a student-industry mixer on campus, providing an opportunity to connect with the next generation of geophysicists.
This is going to be a first class, “behind-the-curtain”, tour of the PGC, put on for BC Geophysicists by the senior research scientists at the facility and will be way beyond what usual visitors receive. Definitely not to be missed.
