"The Forum has been established on an informal basis since March 2005 The Softrock Forum is a monthly medium for the discussion of work in progress at Memorial relating to soft-rock geoscience in its broadest sense.
The Forum has now been adopted by the Department of Earth Sciences as a departmental seminar series.
The aim of the Forum is primarily to increase inter-disciplinary interaction between MUN faculty and students but is also open to local industry and government to come and see "research in progress" from what is a growing body of softrock-related workers at MUN.
We particularly encourage speakers (both faculty and student) to come with new or problematic datasets or new ideas and concepts. The environment is one of collegial helpfulness.
