Receiver and antenna parts have started to arrive here at UMass Boston!  

 

EclipseMob is offering a series of webinars in partnership with the Geological Society of America. Webinars will be offered 2-3pm ET and 3-4pm ET on Saturdays in 2017: 4/29; 6/17; 7/22 (NGSS-aligned; professional development certificates available upon completion).

 

Our first two webinars were presented on Saturday, February 25. The recordings for these webinars are listed below. 

  • These recordings are only available to those who registered.  If you would like to listen to the recording, you would need to register for this webinar first. You can register using the links below.
  • Note: There is an error in which the speaker misspoke and said the solar eclipse was in the full moon phase; that should be the new moon phase.
