During the academic year, SAFL hosts weekly seminars on various topics related to environmental, geophysical and biological fluid mechanics and engineering featuring presenters from academia, government agencies and industry. These seminars are free and open to the public. Join us to learn about the latest research advancements and network with contacts in the field.
SAFL seminars are be held on Tuesdays, from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. in the SAFL Auditorium.
