Seminars & Publications

ECL engages the scientific community and the public by sharing its discoveries and findings in publications and reports, as well as hosting seminars and other events.  Since the mid-1980s, ECL scientists have published more than 200 scientific papers, averaging six to seven papers per year.  In addition, ECL hosts bi-weekly seminars on the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm in the Berkeley Regional Office.

If you have something to contribute to the scientific community and are interested in being a guest speaker, or if you would like additional information, contact Kathleen Jones-Tucker.
