Continuation of Tea & Crumpets Series at St. Petersburg
This fall the Tea & Crumpets Series will continue with expanded participation
and sharing of facilities at the Center for Coastal Geology in St. Petersburg
and the BRD Florida and Caribbean Science Center (FCSC) in Gainesville, FL.
The series, the brainchild of Terry Edgar, is intended to foster exchange on
new or controversial issues through informal presentation and discussion.
Speakers may present results from their own research or may discuss issues
surrounding old or new scientific developments that warrant the attention
of USGS scientists. Audience participation is encouraged.
Bob Dorazio gave the first presentation this fall at the St. Pete Center
on September 16, 1999. A statistician from FCSC in Gainesville, Bob spoke
on "Estimation of Individual Growth Rates from the Sizes of Recaptured Fish,
Mollusks, and Other Earthly Beasts: Problems, Promises, and Reality.Ó The
next presentations will include Tim Gross (FCSC) speaking in St. Pete on
October 7, and Peter Swarzenski (CFCG) speaking at the FCSC facility in
Gainesville in mid-October.
