The TMS is delighted to announce that the next Foraminifera and Nannofossil spring meeting will be hosted by the University of Birmingham on the 19-21st June 2017.The program will encompass oral presentations and extended posters sessions, an icebreaker reception in the Lapworth Museum of Geology, a conference dinner, as well as an optional field excursion and thematic workshops on Monday 19th June.

The theme for this year’s event is “Life in a Changing Ocean”. We strongly encourage submissions that address the vulnerability and resilience of foraminifera and coccolithophores to environmental change, past and present, as well as the interaction between changing marine environments and evolutionary processes and patterns over long timescales.

Lyell Meeting 2017: Sticking Together: microbes and their role in forming sediments, 7th March 2017, London

Comments Off on Lyell Meeting 2017: Sticking Together: microbes and their role in forming sediments, 7th March 2017, London

 

At The Geological Society, Burlington House

Sedimentology and geomorphology have traditionally been seen as fields in which physical, and sometimes chemical, processes dominate completely. Even in settings where biological processes have long been recognised, for example in marine carbonates, focus has been almost entirely on metazoans. This is curious, because microbial communities since the Pre-Cambrian, have suffused all sedimentary environments on Earth, and at least half global biomass is prokaryotic. Are all these microbes simply bystanders? Recent research has hinted that they are key agents in controlling an impressive range of processes and products in sedimentology, bringing the fields of microbe palaeontology and bio-sedimentology into intimate alignment. The implications are fundamental, and pose the question “are large-scale sedimentological features actually microbial trace fossils?”. Read more

Joint Meeting of TSOP-AASP- ICCP, 14 September 2016, Houston

Comments Off on Joint Meeting of TSOP-AASP- ICCP, 14 September 2016, Houston

DATES:

Saturday, September 17 through Saturday, September 14, 2016

LOCATION:

The Magnolia Hotel, Houston TX, USA

DESCRIPTION:

Joint Meeting of The Society for Organic Petrography, AASP-The Palynological Society and The

International Commission for Coal and Organic Petrography. The purpose of this joint meeting is to bring

together a diverse group of scientists to discuss the close relationships between organic petrology and

palynology, to foster thoughtful discussion and address issues that may be of benefit to furthering the

respective sciences. Key themes to be addressed during joint activities include source rock/source-rock

reservoir resource assessment, microscope methods of characterizing microporosity, coal

characterization, and palynofacies/kerogen.
