Metamorphic Studies Group

twitter_120  facebook_120

This is a joint specialist group of the Mineralogical Society and the Geological Society, and was inaugurated in 1981 to promote all aspects of field and laboratory studies relating to metamorphic rocks. Meetings on particular themes are held each year, and field excursions are organized periodically. In March of each year, an annual meeting is held on "Research in Progress" when short papers on all aspects of metamorphism are invited, and research students are particularly encouraged to participate. Further details about the group are available from the secretary, Dr Clare Warren at clare.warren@open.ac.uk


MSG Bursaries

Applications for student conference bursaries are now open.  Please see the attached rules and send the completed application form to Clare Warren (clare.warren@open.ac.uk ) for consideration.  Please note these bursaries do not cover fieldwork, only conferences and workshops. Awards are open to any postgraduate student studying at a UK or Ireland university. 

RIP 2016

The 2016 Research in Progress meeting was hosted by the British Geological Survey, Keyworth, on Tuesday 15th March.  It was preceded on Monday 14th by a Geochronology Workshop organised by the NERC Isotope Geoscience Labs.  Both were a great success, with registration for the RiP meeting closed early due to over-capacity!  Joerg Hermann and Owen Weller gave fascinating invited talks, and Bruce Yardley gave a very funny 35 year overview of how far the MSG has come.

Thanks to all attendees for making it such a great meeting, and we look forward to the next meeting, probably to be held in Oxford around the 14-16 March 2017.  Watch this space for more information towards the end of 2016!"
