Chairs letter

Fall 2017

Dear Alumni and Friends of UC Davis Earth and Planetary Sciences:

I proudly send you the latest edition of the UC Davis Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences newsletter. I hope you enjoy reading about the exciting teaching and research in the department. Janice Fong put together a wonderful portfolio of current events, as well some tweet-sized (or longer) remarks from your fellow alumni. Feel free to post your appreciation or further news on the Geology Department at UC Davis Facebook page.

Some late breaking, exciting news: Two of the EPS faculty, Professor Kari Cooper and Professor John Rundle, have been elected as fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Congratulations to Kari and John!

The entire Department joins me in wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season and new year. We look forward to seeing you when you next visit Earth and Planetary Sciences!


Mike Oskin
Chair and Professor, Earth and Planetary Sciences, UC Davis
