We’ve all been very busy here getting our results ready to present at two big scientific conferences. Most of our group will be attending either the 74th Annual Meeting of the Meteoritical Society and/or Goldschmidt 2011 over the next couple of weeks. We will be reporting back to you on what’s been going on.
The Meteoritical Society Meeting is being held at the University of Greenwich, London this year and is hosted by the Natural History Museum and Imperial College London. 100s of scientists from all over the world will be presenting their research on meteorites. There will also be lectures from Astronomer Royal and Master at Cambridge University, Lord Martin Rees and leader of the Beagle 2 project, Colin Pillinger (CBE).
Goldschmidt is the premier international conference on geochemsitry. It is organised jointly by the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry. This year the conference is being held in Prague and is expected to be the largest attended Goldschmidt so far with over 3,700 scientific abstracts submitted! Plenary sessions will be presented on topics including Volatiles in the Mantle and Exoplanet Atmospheres.
