As a new initiative, the EMU is supporting visits of this year’s winner of the Research Excellence Medal, Dr Katharina Marquardt, to two or three European institutions to present her Medal lecture. Read about her work and her perception of science in the blog of European Association of Geochemistry. Dr Marquardt received her award at the Goldschmidt meeting in Barcelona and her lecture is entitled:
“Olivine interface distributions in static and dynamic equilibrium; effects of diffusion vs effects of dislocation motion.”
Anyone who is interested in having a visit to their institution should contact the Secretary of EMU, Dr Juraj Majzlan with a proposal of when and where Dr Marquardt would give her lecture. Dr Majzlan will decide on the most suitable requests, to fit in also with Dr Marquardt’s schedule.
European Journal of Mineralogy has a new web page and will be published as a fully open-access journal, starting in 2020. Manuscripts can be submitted already now at a temporarily reduced price.
There are new volumes of EMU Notes in Mineralogy available:
Volume 19: J. Plášil, J. Majzlan, S. Krivovichev, editors: Mineralogical Crystallography.
Volume 18: A.F. Gualtieri, editor: Mineral fibres: Crystal chemistry, chemical-physical properties, biological interaction and toxicity.
Volume 17: I.A.M. Ahmed and K.A. Hudson-Edwards, editors: Redox-reactive minerals: Properties, reactions and applications in clean technologies.
Volume 16: W. Heinrich and R. Abart, editors: Mineral reaction kinetics: Microstructures, textures, chemical and isotopic signatures.
Purchase a copy of these books from the bookshop of the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain & Ireland.
