After a long pandemic year, it is time to reconnect in person. The Mines Geophysics Reunion Committee invites you to the 2021 Geophysics Department reunion. We hope that you and your family will join us in person - though we have also provided a virtual option - for a weekend of of memory sharing and memory making with your friends and colleagues. 


While many graduates continue in the Geophysics field, many have also let us know through email that they have changed fields. Please do not let a career change stop you from coming to the reunion! We know that there are many in your shoes, and you may be surprised at the new connections you will form through this shared bond.


Add your profile to the Classmates Page and check out which friends and colleagues have already signed up. Add photos of your time at Mines, memorials to our friends who have passed away and register for tickets all on this site. Please share this site with as many of our classmates as possible and ask everyone to register.

Keynote Speaker

The Courage to See Below the Surface: A Charge for Today's Geophysicists

Dr. Katerina Gonzales is a climate scientist and postdoctoral fellow at the University of Minnesota. She is fascinated by how her favorite layer of the earth (the atmosphere) works, and how it affects rainfall, flooding, and water resources. Her mission as a climate scientist is to understand how extreme events are changing as the climate warms, and to help build the critical links between science and society, putting science into action. Katerina received her Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2021 and before that graduated Mines Geophysics with her B.S. in 2015. She was born and raised in Denver, and misses her favorite restaurants in the area, including Sherpa House and Carl’s Pizza.
