Congratulations to Dr Jonathan Dean on his appointment as Honorary Research Fellow within the School of Geography, University of Nottingham. Jonathan’s appointment is due to his collaborations within the Centre for Environmental Geochemistry, in particular with Dr Matthew Jones and Prof Sarah Metcalfe on climate change in Turkey.
Debbie White who was awarded the RSC Water Science Forum Poster Prize for Best Poster at the "Emerging contaminants in waters and soils, practical considerations: Sampling, analysis and consequences" conference. Her poster, co-authored by Dan Lapworth, Marianne Stuart and Peter Williams, was titled, “Profiling micro-organic contaminants in groundwater using multi-level piezometers”.
Welcome to Dr Clement Uguna who has joined BGS as a Research Fellow within Organic Geochemistry and the Centre for Environmental Geochemistry. Clement is investigating the mechanism of shale gas formation and how gas is stored within shale rocks in unconventional reservoirs by using high water pressure pyrolysis technique to simulate shale gas generation as a function of temperature and pressure over geological time scales. This is to improve our understanding of the mechanism of shale gas formation and how it is stored within shale rocks.
