Its mid-March, and we all know what that means…

It is almost time for the 49th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC), which will be taking place in The Woodlands, Texas next week.

Work by several members of our research group will be presented at the conference, and links to their abstracts are at the bottom of this post.

As in the last few years, a top team of specially selected tweeters will be microblogging from the conference – live tweeting research presented at the conference, news and gossip(!). Group member Ricci Bahia has been selected to join this twitter crazy team, and will be tweeting from our @EarthSolarSystm account. Follow the hashtag #LPSC2018 next week for live updates from the conference. The time difference is a little annoying, remember the clocks have already changed to daylight saving in America, so Houston is currently 5 hour behind GMT.

About Sarah Crowther

I'm a Post Doc in the Isotope Geochemistry and Cosmochemistry group. I study xenon isotope ratios using the RELAX mass spectrometer, to try to learn more about the origins and evolution of our solar system. I look at a wide range of samples from solar wind returned by NASA's Genesis mission to zircons (some of the oldest known terrestrial rocks), from meteorites to presolar grains.
