Goldschmidt 2016 conference

Several group members recently presented their latest research findings at the 2016 Goldschmidt conference. This international meeting attracts researchers from all over the world to present the latest findings from across a wide range of geochemistry disciplines (think water pollution to deep Earth mantle processes to radioactive leak mitigation to planetary science).

We presented our research through a mix of talks and poster presentations, giving us a chance to discuss our findings with others in our field and catch up with old friends and collaborators from across the world.

The meeting was held in held in Yokohama, a coastal city in Japan, just to the south of Tokyo.  It was very hot in Japan compared with Manchester (35C some days)! Being in Japan also gave us with an opportunity to visit the active stratovolcano Mt Fuji after the conference and see for ourselves a spectacular example of terrestrial volcanism.
