The European Mineralogical Union (EMU) awards a medal for research excellence to young scientists since 1995. The medal is intended for young scientists (no older than ~ 40) who have made significant contributions to research in mineralogy and whose professional and societal activities contribute to strengthening scientific links in Europe. This year’s medalist committee (Clare Warren, Max […]
At the Fall Meeting in New Orleans, the following Mineral and Rock Physics section awards were announced: Christopher Lagrand is winner of the 2017 Jamieson Student Paper Award! Our 2017 AGU MRP Graduate Research Award winners are Harrison Lisabeth and Joshua Townsend! Lowell Miyagi received the 2017 AGU MRP Early Career Award! Congratulations to all!
AGU Eos feature on physics of silica at high temperatures and pressures: “Although scientists would like to better characterize the early impacts that literally shaped our solar system, the degree to which rock melts and vaporizes during impacts isn’t well understood because of poorly constrained equations of state. Connolly set out to refine the equation […]
The 2016 John C. Jamieson Student Paper Award was given to Ting Chen, Xintong Qi and Xuebing Wang for their paper, “Acoustic travel time gauges for in-situ determination of pressure and temperature in multi-anvil apparatus,” published in Journal of Applied Physics 118, 065901 (2015); doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4928147. This work develops and evaluates a new technique for determining […]
A new paper by Quintanilla-Terminel and Evans is featured in Eos. The authors’ new technique applies microfabrication to samples for rock deformation experiments to increase the precision of strain analysis. Using this method on Carrara marble, “The authors observed that at higher temperatures and pressures, points of deformation became more homogeneous and concentrated in smaller areas within […]
