On April 20th, 2017, I was honoured to speak to the University of Toronto Earth Science graduating class at the "Earth Ring" ceremony.

The Earth Science Ring Ceremony was started at the University of Alberta in 1975, and has been adopted by other academic instituations across Canada. It's a ritual of welcome into the profession for newly qualified geologists and geophysicists. Each graduating student is presented with a ring, marked with the cossed hammer of geology and with the seismic trace of geophysics. It symbolizes the commitment and responsibility that comes with the geoscience profession.
