Hubbert Quorum

 

The 22nd annual Hubbert Quorum - Sunday, December 14th 2014 - program

The purpose of this one-day meeting at the USGS Menlo Park center is to bring together hydrogeologists and geoscientists who are interested in geologic processes associated with crustal fluids. Frequently these researchers work on topics that have application to fields outside of hydrology such as fault mechanics, volcanology, and economic geology. The meeting is intended to attract a group of natural-process-oriented scientists to freely exchange ideas on an annual basis.

The Quorum is an all-day affair beginning at 11:00 AM and adjourning at 6:00 PM. The meeting begins with an "icebreaker" brunch and is followed by several extended (20 minutes), and short (10 minutes) presentations. The goal is to avoid the hectic pace of typical meetings by providing ample time for open discussion and questions during/following each presentation. All talks are intended to initiate discussion by presenting a stimulating "work in progress" rather than a canned talk.
