One of the great things about geology is how it incorporates observations from the huge to the tiny. We can think on the scale of whole earth (or even bigger), continents, regions, outcrops, rocks, crystals or atoms, and everything in between. If you are in the latter groups, you are probably following closely the amazing developments in microanalysis that seem to happen every year, allowing us to ...[Read More]

One of the often underrated parts of a conference are the short-courses – these give us a way to spend some time learning a topic in detail. If you find that it’s tough to really digest information in a 15 minute talk, then the short courses are for you! Today we are highlighting a potentially useful (and lucrative) course about how to apply for Marie Skłodowska-Curie grants from the E ...[Read More]
