GeoMünster 2019 “Earth! Past, Present, Future”

TIMEleSS members will be at GeoMünster 2019! GeoMünster 2019 is the Annual Conference of the Deutsche Geologische Gesellschaft – Geologische Vereinigung (DGGV – The German Geological Society) and the Deutsche Mineralogische Gesellschaft (DMG – The German Mineralogical Society). It will be held 22–25 September 2019 at the Münster University, Germany, and will be organized and by the Institutes for Geology and Paleontology, Mineralogy, and Planetology. TIMEleSS members are organizing a session entitled Minerals in the depths: an experimental approach, with a oral presentation of TIMEleSS student Matthias Krug and a poster from our partner Iliya Kupenko. See you in Münster in September!

TIMEleSS Annual Meeting

The TIMEleSS Annual Meeting was held at the Jugendherberge in Aachen, Germany, on 23-24 July 2019. Members from the Université de Lille (Julien Chantel, Jeffrey Gay, Estelle Ledoux, Sébastien Merkel), the Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität, Münster (Matthias Krug, Federica Rochira, Morvarid Saki, Christine Thomas), and the Deutsche GeoForschungsZentrum, Potsdam (Sergio Speziale) met for two days to discuss current advances and future plans. The first day was dedicated to progress report by the PhD students followed by a scientific presentation by our guest Morvarid Saki. Projects members discussed potential interactions and plans for the next year during the second day. The meeting a was great opportunity to highlight the current achievements of the project and to focus the work that remains. We now[…]

Colloque de la Sfµ 2019

Estelle Ledoux presents her work at the Colloque de la Sfµ 2019

The Colloque de la Sfµ is the meeting of the French microscopy society. It is held annually and mostly focuses on electron microscopy techniques. Estelle Ledoux, PhD student partially financed by TIMEleSS, presented her results on EBSD analyzes of plastically deformed polycrystalline MgO. The work is a result of a collaboration between the group at the University of Lille and that of L. Miyagi at the University of Utah. The results of the work will be useful for the TIMEleSS project for addressing properties of the Earth’s lower mantle.

Diamond High-Pressure Workshop, 26/02/2019 - 27/02/2019

TIMEleSS PI giving an invited presentation at the Diamond light source

S. Merkel gave an invited presentation at the Diamond Light Source workshop on high pressure research, in the UK. The workshop aims to bring together high-pressure researchers with different experimental expertise and to highlight the latest developments in high-pressure techniques across synchrotron beamlines. S. Merkel gave a presentation entitled “In situ study of phase transformation mechanisms using multigrain crystallography“. The presentation was an opportunity to present the science at the foundation of the TIMEleSS project, its objectives, and some results.
