Vision and Objectives

image of Dr. Richard Gordon

The energy industry and academia have overlapping research interests in many Earth Science topics, and both groups stand to benefit from symbiotic interactions. Based on this premise, the Department of Earth Science at Rice University is initiating a two-day series of annual symposia, titled the "Industry-Rice Earth Science Symposia." The format seeks to engage all participants to promote the exchange of information and knowledge on issues at the forefront of Earth Science research, in particular those that relate to energy. This will be developed through a program of keynote lectures, group discussions, and poster presentations, with participation open to all academic and industry scientists.
