BP spill left big oily 'bathtub ring' on seafloor
The BP oil spill left an oily "bathtub ring" on the sea floor that's about the size of Rhode Island, new research shows. The study by David Valentine, the chief scientist on the federal damage assessment research ships, estimates that about 10 million gallons of oil coagulated on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico around the damaged Deepwater Horizons oil rig.
Goldschmidt2015: Call for Sessions
Deadline: Monday, Dec. 15
Goldschmidt2015 will be the 25th Goldschmidt conferences, and to celebrate we are returning to beautiful Prague, the same venue as Goldschmidt2011. The Goldschmidt conference is the most important forum for the discussion of recent results in geochemistry and related fields. The science committee has identified the key theme areas, and the theme convenors have proposed a range of sessions in each theme. Now the whole community is invited to view the sessions already proposed, and make suggestions for further sessions.
Analab manufacture corrosion resistant laboratory appliances such as acid vapour cleaning stations, hotplates, and sample preparation devices. Our devices can be used with a wide range of acids and bases (HF to NH4OH). We are represented in North America by Isomass Scientific.
Please visit us at GSA 2014 in Vancouver, Booth 1018.
Goldschmidt2015: Call for workshops, short courses and town hall meetings
Deadline: Monday, Dec. 15
Workshops are a great opportunity to teach valuable skills or share new techniques, and over 400 delegates are expected to participate in workshops during the weekend before Goldschmidt2015. The Goldschmidt conferences are one of the best annual opportunities to reach the community and the conference office will manage the provision of rooms, audiovisual equipment, catering, delegate bookings and payments: all workshop organizers need to do is publicize their workshop and prepare their materials.

Low oxygen 'delayed animal life on Earth'
There's been much debate about why animals took so long to evolve and thrive on Earth.
Now scientists say it was due to incredibly low levels of oxygen on Earth more than a billion years ago.
A team determined the chemical composition of ancient rocks to find there was about 0.1 percent of the oxygen levels present compared with today.
The researchers present their work in Science journal.
Why complex life took so long to appear on the scene has puzzled scientists for many years. It was only over 500 million years ago that life on Earth began to flourish in a period known as the Cambrian explosion.
