VU mini-symposium: ‘‘Impacts of climate changes on the fluvial sedimentary system in the recent and geological past’’
Next Week, on Thursday the 27th of June, Lars Noorbergen is going to defend his PhD thesis entitled ‘‘Fluvial responses to orbital-forced climate changes in the Western Interior early Paleocene’’. The defense will be held in the Aula (main building VU University Amsterdam) and starts at 09:45 am. The defense is followed by a reception in the Houtzagerij in den Koele Blonde WN-F045 at 11.30 am.
