About Tropical Hour

One speaker per week is selected from the rota (below) to lead a discussion about their research. The discussion will generally be supported by figures, but speakers are encouraged not to plan a formal presentation. Discussion of unfinished work, especially confusing or conflicting results, is encouraged. We expect the speaker's discussion to last around half an hour.

Everyone else is encouraged to bring something along to discuss after the speaker finishes. This could include a plot or two of recent work, technical difficulties you have had, ideas for proposals/experiments, current papers, current weather events - anything you want feedback on.

On the first Monday of every month we discuss current tropical weather and current papers.

The best way to find out who will be discussing his or her work in Tropical Hour is to subscribe to the Tropical Group mailing list.
