    {P1020032.jpg} Me, and the centre of my world, my daughter MarthaI am a senior lecturer in the School of Geography at QMUL, and recently took over as Director of the Centre for Micromorphology. My research focuses on the use of micro-scale methods for analysing sediments, mainly from glacial environments, but increasingly in other sedimentary environments and also more applied contexts. I have specialised in thin section micromorphology for 18 years, having trained with Jaap van der Meer and Jim Rose during my PhD. In recent years my interests have broadened into the use of 3D X-ray tomography and Scanning Electron Microscopy. Outside work, my life is completely dominated by my daughter Martha, who in combination with my wife Natalie both run rings around me at every occasion.

    Iron oxides?
    Hi there,

    I like to raise a mineralogical question. I frequently find some dark red and brown minerals in my sections, probably iron oxides. I suppose that the dark red one (marked by the upper arrow) is hematite and the bright brown one is goethite (marked by the lower arrow). Does anyone agree or am I completely wrong?

    Best wishes,

    Florian

    Dr Sam Roberson: Geological Consultant, Rijswijk
    {profilePic.jpeg} I am a geological consultant in the Netherlands working with the Geological Survey of the Netherlands. Recently I have been working on modeling subsurface particle-size distributions throughout the Netherlands. A key aspect of this project is the The Particle-Size Toolbox, a suite of numerical functions for robustly analyzing particle-size data. I have a PhD and Masters in glaciology, with additional expertise in sedimentology and geostatistical methods. I am interested in the capacity of micro-CT for modeling glacial sediment transport. I am particularly interested in scaling issues and methods of upscaling the physical properties of sediment.

    I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham and UNIS as part of the GAINS (Glacial Activity in Neoproterozoic Svalbard) project. For my PhD, I am using a combination of traditional and new techniques, in particular AMS (Anisotropy of Magnetic Susceptility), to examine a “Snowball Earth” glaciation in Svalbard, where it is suggested that ice spread to low latitudes in arguably one of the most extreme events in the earth’s history. As part of the project, the AMS and structural techniques are also being applied to other areas of glacial geology, such as investigating the processes involved in the formation and subsequent deformation of glacigenic sediments and constraining deformation within the basal ice of surging glaciers.
