Chris Jackson and Clara Rodriguez have recently received the proofs for their upcoming paper in GEOLOGY. Clara was so happy, she even took a picture of herself with the proofs. Well done both!
Azli Abu Bakar, Thilo Wrona, Marijn van Cappelle, Dan Collins, Yvette Flood, Gary Hampson and Chris Jackson (keynote) attended and presented their research at the 52nd AGM of the British Sedimentological Research Group (BSRG). Although socially quite 'strenuous', the group's work was very well-received.
Rebecca Bell presented a talk at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco on “Recovering physical property information from subduction plate boundaries using 3D full-waveform seismic inversion”. She also convened a special session entitled “Subduction plate boundaries from the trench to sub-arc and beyond”.
Craig Magee presented two invited talks at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco on the "Lithological controls of intrusion-induced deformation" and "Magma rheology variations in sheet intrusions". Craig was also a co-author on a talk entitled "Linking magnetic fabric and cumulate texture in layered mafic-ultramafic intrusions".
Susie Maidment also presented a talk at the Sussex Mineralogical and Lapidary Society entitled "Walking with Dinosaurs".
See below the break for abstracts. Congratulations all!
Craig Magee and Chris Jackson's paper on "Lithological controls on igneous intrusion-induced ground deformation" was the second most downloaded paper for the Journal of the Geological Society of London in November with 95 downloads. Congratulations both!

Han Claringbould (supervised by Rebecca Bell and Chris Jackson) successfully passed his 21-month PhD exam, presenting interim results on the structural and stratigraphic expression of multiphase rifting. Further details of his PhD project can be found on his website. Congratulations Han!
Aruna Mannie and Nick Holgate, both of whom are supervised by Gary Hampson and Chris Jackson, have both submitted their PhDs and await their vivas in early 2014. Further details of their PhD projects can be found on their websites. Congratulations both!

Chris Jackson undertook fieldwork in the Neuquen Basin, Argentina as part of Mariana Gomez O'Connell's PhD project which is entitled "Early post-rift submarine lobes; the role of inherited syn-rift bathymetry and the stratigraphic occurrence of hydrid beds". This project is based at the University of Leeds and is being co-supervised by Dave Hodgson.
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).
