Hamilton Visiting Scholar in Geophysics Lecture Series


The Hamilton Visiting Scholar in Geophysics Endowment celebrates the collaboration between SMU Earth Sciences and Geotech where Jack Hamilton served as engineer and CEO. Geotech designs and manufactures seismic instruments which were critical for the world wide seismic network. This program presents the SMU community with some of the best scientists in the geophysics and earth sciences. Every semester we are priviledged to host a scientist making a mark on these areas of study.
