EMAS 2018 - Microbeam Analysis in the Earth Sciences
From 04.09.2018 until 07.09.2018 Save to calendar
Categories: Regional Workshop
Scope of the workshop
In something of a departure from the format of recent Regional Workshops, EMAS 2018 will focus on a single subject area, Earth Sciences, and present a workshop aimed at the earth science research community to bring them up to speed with the latest advances in microbeam techniques as applied to their samples. It will be twenty years since the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland (MinSoc) presented “Microbeam techniques in geology” in London and EMAS is joining MinSoc to present this current workshop.
Techniques covered include, SEM, EPMA, CL, EBSD, TEM, Raman, FT-IR microscopy, laser ablation mass spectrometry, SIMS, NanoSIMS, atom probe tomography, and synchrotron-based techniques. Each subject will include tutorials from analytical experts together with lectures from earth scientists applying the various techniques to their own materials.
The workshop is to be hosted in the conference facility at Wills Hall, part of the University of Bristol. The full programme will appear shortly.
