On January 13th Chris Jackson co-hosted ‘Undersampled Radio’, a geo-podcast regularly hosted by Matt Hall and Graham Gansalle, Chris discussed amongst many, many other random things, his GSA lecture tour, academic publishing trends, and the seemingly thorny issue of whether conference posters have the same kudos as talks. Check out the podcast here. Chris will be returning to Undersampled Radio sometime during his GSA tour...
Antje Lenhart, Tom Phillips, Rebecca Bell and Chris Jackson attended the final meeting of the ‘MultiRift’ project in Bergen, Norway (11th January). The MultiRift project is a multi-institutional (Imperial, Bergen, Manchester), Norwegian Research Council-funded (the Norwegian ‘NERC’) project aimed at understanding the tectono-stratigraphic development of rifts that formed in response to polyphase extension.

Chris Jackson began the 1st leg of his Geological Society of America (GSA) Distinguished Lecturer Tour. This leg will last two weeks (28th January-11th February), with Chris giving talks at Ohio State, Rutgers, Oklahoma, Hawaii and Colorado School of Mines. As part of the tour and on behalf of GSA, Chris has been writing a blog, chronicling the background to and preparation for the tour; wi-fi connectivity permitting, he will also be ‘live blogging’ whilst he’s on the road. If you’re into that sort of thing and have a spare five minutes over a cup of tea, please check out his blog at: https://cjackson2013.wordpress.com/author/cjackson2013/. You can also follow Chris on Twitter at @seis_matters. The 2nd leg of the tour will take place in mid-April, with Chris planning visits to El Paso, Virginia, Oregon, Arkansas, Connecticut and Colombia.
The Basins Research Group (BRG) at Imperial College London focuses on the geodynamic, struc-tural, and stratigraphic evolution of sedimentary basins. This range of ac-tivities is centred around a multidisciplinary group of Earth Scientists who are committed to understand-ing the fundamental geo-logical processes opera-ting in evolving sediment-ary basins, and the application of this under-standing to determining the nature, origin and occurrence of natural resources (see Themes).
