This week we would like to congratulate Nikolai Østgaard who learned this summer that his application to the Advanced Investigator Grant with his work Terrestrial Gamma Flashes - the Most Energetic Photon Phenomenon in our Atmosphere had passed the first round in ERC's evaluation process! We are all waiting in suspense for the results of the second round.
Today's open seminar
Researcher Mark van Zuilen, Department of geo-science/Center for geo-biology, UoB:
In situ analysis methods for tracking early life
Morphological identification of microfossils in the metamorphosed early Earth rock record has been highly controversial. Structural, chemical and isotopic characterization of small scale objects in polished rock slabs such as mineral assemblages, microlaminae, and organic microstructures is therefore of crucial importance in reconstructing the earliest evolution of life. Several of these in-situ analytical techniques will be discussed, with emphasis on Raman spectroscopy and secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS, NanoSIMS).
