27 Terrific Live, Active and Archived Geoscience Webinars

This list of webinars is divided into live, active and archived webinars.

Live webinars are geoscience talk series, which are currently active and occur in real-time using programs like Zoom. Imagine listening to a seminar at a university where you can ask questions.

Active webinars are geoscience webinars that are being regularly produced and can be watched after their posted, like YouTube videos.

Archived webinars are geoscience webinars that are no longer being regularly produced but are still a great source of information.
