Good Morning Goldschmidters,
I trust you all enjoyed the Ice Breaker last night. Sadly, I was too late into Prague to make it. You can read about how Nicci found her first Goldschmidt Ice Breaker here.
It seems everything is all set to go at the start of this year’s science programme. Highlights today include 3 medal citations:
- 10:45-11:30 Encarnación Ruiz-Agudo (EMU Research Excellence Medal) Session 5B, Terrace 1
- 14:45-15:30 Chris Reddy (2014 Patterson Medal) Session 4B, Chamber Hall

Andy’s Pick of the Day
I saw Rachel present at Goldschmidt in Sacramento and I found her work fascinating. Today she is presenting the next stage of her PhD research on “The Role of Forest Trees and their Mycorrhizal Fungi in Carbonate Weathering and Phosphorus Biogeochemical Cycling”.
Have a great day!
