Dear NCAR Postdocs,

The Thompson Lecture Series (TLS) is coming up on December 7-9th (Monday-Wednesday), featuring Dr. Ian Faloona, our previous ASP postdoc and current associate professor at University of California-Davis who studies the physical and chemical principles that control trace gas concentrations and their fluctuations in the atmosphere and ocean. Dr. Faloona's bio and abstracts for his lectures can be found on the ASP TLS website <http://www.asp.ucar.edu/thompson/thompson_lecture.php>.


 -       Twice a year, the TLS brings a scientist to NCAR to talk about their work, make themselves available to talk to postdocs about science and careers, and provide an opportunity for networking among the postdocs. 

-       A more detailed schedule (including opportunities to sign up for individual meetings) is available on the wiki <https://wiki.ucar.edu/pages/viewpage.action?title=Schedule+of+events+Ian+Faloona&spaceKey=aspthompson08>. If you have trouble accessing the wiki, please send me an email and we'll work it out.  

-       We are encouraging postdocs to sign up the individual meeting with Dr. Faloona (sign up here <https://wiki.ucar.edu/pages/viewpage.action?title=Schedule+of+events+Ian+Faloona&spaceKey=aspthompson08>). Don't be afraid to sign up just because your science interests are different than the speaker's! You will hopefully find that he has a breadth of interests and can also offer you interesting insights on your career development. 

-       ASPs, recall that attending TLS events is mandatory if you're in town!
