Adjusting Earth's thermostat, with caution
Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences via ScienceDaily
A vast majority of scientists believe that the Earth is warming at an unprecedented rate and that human activity is almost certainly the dominant cause. But on the topics of response and mitigation, there is far less consensus.
Goldschmidt2015: Call for Sessions
The Goldschmidt2015 call for sessions is now open. The science committee would like to invite the community to review the list of sessions proposed and suggest new sessions where the subject matter would not be covered by the existing list. You should be confident that any session you propose will attract at least 25 abstract submissions to the conference. The call for sessions will run until Dec. 15 so you have until then to submit your session title, list of convenors, description and possible speakers. After Dec. 15 the full list of sessions will be reviewed and all those suggesting sessions will informed of their status by Jan. 20 ready for abstract submission to begin on Feb. 15. If your session is accepted into the final program you will be expected to confirm the details including a possible keynote speaker by Feb. 5. Please do not confirm invitations to speakers until your session is accepted.
Goldschmidt2016: Science Committee finalized
The Goldschmidt2016 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the leaders of the Science Committee have been finalized. They are:
- Hisayoshi Yurimoto, Chair (Hokkaido Univ., Japan, cosmochemistry),
- Daniela Rubatto (ANU, Australia, isotope geochemistry),
- Roberta Rudnick (Univ. Maryland, USA, solid geochemistry),
- Katz Suzuki (JAMSTEC, Japan, resource geochemistry),
- Derek Vance (ETH, Switzerland, environmental geochemistry) and
- Meixun Zhao (Ocean University of China, China, organic geochemistry)
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.

Spiraling light, nanoparticles and insights into life's structure
University of Michigan via ScienceDaily
As hands come in left and right versions that are mirror images of each other, so do the amino acids and sugars within us. But unlike hands, only the left-oriented amino acids and the right-oriented sugars ever make into life as we know it.
40 years of scratching reveals ocean acidification data
As carbon dioxide levels increase due largely to human emissions, the world's oceans are becoming highly corrosive to a number of organisms that call it home. But the rate of acidification and related changes are anything but uniform.

Jurassic climate was far more complex than previously known
The climate 150 million years ago of a large swath of the western United States was more complex than previously known, according to new research from Southern Methodist University, Dallas. It's been held that the climate during the Jurassic was fairly dry in New Mexico, then gradually transitioned to a wetter climate northward to Montana.
