Please follow this link to an article featuring research that was recently completed at Los Alamos National Lab on one of our premiere gold samples. The accompanying video is definitely worth watching as well! Congratulations to Raquel Alonso Perez and the EPS Collections...
It is with great sadness that we note the passing of our friend and colleague, Ulrich Petersen (Harry C Dudley Professor of Economic Geology, Emeritus). Ulrich joined our faculty in 1963 and continued in that role until his retirement in 1995. He and his wife Eileen remained active in the department throughout the years and were happily present for our social gatherings such as the start of term celebration as recently as this past August. He was an excellent scholar and a truly fine man and will be greatly missed.
Please follow this link for a look at several new videos posted by the Harvard Museum of Natural History in relation to the new Earth and Planetary Sciences exhibition in the public galleries. Some good scientific content here featuring EPS researchers! If you have not taken the time to see the exhibit yet we encourage you to do so.
