About The Len Robock Annual Lecture

This lecture series is supported by a generous gift made from the estate of Leonard Robock with the mandate that the Department bring in an expert to give a public lecture on an issue related to the public interest (e.g. climate change, tornadoes, hurricanes, hydrothermal vents, etc.). The lecture is to be advertised broadly and to be presented at a level accessible to the public as well as students and educators. It is to be aimed at educating attendees on the state of our knowledge on the issue at hand.
