Many geoscientists associate the name Goldschmidt as one of the premier conferences in the field of geochemistry - just follow the associated hashtags on Twitter and you'll see how this field shapes our understanding of the world. Little know the man behind the name.
The Ecological Marine Unit Explorer is an interactive program which uses physical and chemical patterns in the ocean to generate ecological zones, which are the marine equivalents of deserts, rainforests and tundras. It has three components: an interactive map, a depth profile tool and a numerical table.

The Geological Society of London's (GSL) journal published a new study looking at the origin of the bluestones of Stonehenge using U-Pb zircon dating. The GSL blog outlines some of the early findings of this study, seeking to determining if the bluestones were carried to Stonehenge, or if the rocks were transported there as glacial erratics.
