Some random pictures from selected Geodynamics team
activities. For the current cast of characters, see
dinner at our first, joint in-person scientific meeting after a long while, AGU in New
Orleans. Fun, but a bit of a mixed omicron blessing. December 2021.
First in-person meeting since the pandemic, three guys worrying
about seismic tomography at College
de France, Paris, October 2021 (Claudio Faccenna, Steve Grand, Thorsten).
First in person meeting since March, at Jester King in
September 2020 to say goodbye to Rob (Silvia, Ethan, Rob, Thorsten,
Simone, Wanying, and Erin).
We shall meet again. Until then, the new normal. Virtual team
meeting with Simone, Thorsten, Alexandra, Erin, Edward,
Sivlia, Wanying, Antoniette, Claudio, Rob, Riccardo, and Ethan (back
in the lab, safely). June 2020.
