Goldschmidt2014: Family Friendly
GS
If you are considering bringing your family with you to Sacramento, the conference website has some family friendly resources to assist in planning your conference experience. The conference is pleased to offer a family room for the use of parents and caregivers of young children as well as a separate room for nursing mothers equipped with electrical points, refrigerator and microwave. Two nearby hotels (the Hyatt and Sheraton) also have services to assist families with children, and be sure to check out the section on useful local information including the Sacramento Parenting website.

RIMG Short Course on Arsenic
GS
The Environmental Geochemistry, Mineralogy, and Microbiology of Arsenic short course and the associated Reviews in Mineralogy and Geochemistry (v.79), will provide a comprehensive understanding of arsenic geochemistry in the near-surface environment. Topics to be covered include the mineralogy, thermodynamics, geochemistry, analysis, microbiology, and bioavailability of arsenic, with emphasis on implications for arsenic toxicity, geochemistry in natural groundwaters, and mine-associated impacts and possible mitigation options.

The course will be held June 15-16 at the Miners Foundry in Nevada City, Calif., following the Goldschmidt2014 conference. Registration must be booked through the Goldschmidt2014 conference by May 8. For more details regarding the program and logistics, please download the Short Course Announcement.

Volcanoes contribute to recent warming 'hiatus'
Geology Times
Volcanic eruptions in the early part of the 21st century have cooled the planet, according to a study led by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This cooling partly offset the warming produced by greenhouse gases.

NASA scientists find evidence of water in meteorite, reviving debate over life on Mars
ScienceDaily
A team of scientists has found evidence of past water movement throughout a Martian meteorite, reviving debate in the scientific community over life on Mars. In 1996, a group of scientists reported biogenic evidence in the Allan Hills 84001(ALH84001) meteorite. In this new study, researchers focused on structures deep within a 30-pound (13.7-kilogram) Martian meteorite known as Yamato 000593 (Y000593). The team reports that newly discovered different structures and compositional features within the larger Yamato meteorite suggest biological processes might have been at work on Mars hundreds of millions of years ago.
