Last September I attended the British Society for Geomorphology (BSG) Annual Meeting in Plymouth University. It was my first opportunity to present my PhD research at an international conference and also a great opportunity to catch up with people I met at the BSG Windsor Workshop in my first year as a PhD student (has it been 3 years already?).

Congratulations to Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Group member Lauren Mc Keown who was awarded a European Geosciences Union Postgraduate Travel Award to present her first international conference talk entitled An Investigation of the Potential Role of Carbon Dioxide Sublimation in Linear Gully Pit Formation on Mars at the 6th International Conference on Mars Polar Science and Exploration in Reykjavik, Iceland.
The International Cartographic Association’s commission of Planetary Cartography has produced a great series of planetary maps that are for kids. See their site here.
The Earth and Planetary Surface Processes Group are delighted to welcome Mr Ciaran Nash as our new Research Assistant in Geomorphology.
Congratulations to Earth and Planetary Surface processes group member Lauren Mc Keown who was given an Irish Geomorphology Group Postgraduate Travel Award to give an oral presentation entitled An Investigation of the Agency of Subliming Carbon Dioxide Ice in Martian Feature Formation, at the Annual Irish Geomorphology Group Meeting, held at University College Cork.
