Isotopes in Biogenic Silica

Biennial conference at UCL

Isotopes in Biogenic Silica

Silicon is a key element that helps regulate the global carbon cycle and acts as a key nutrient in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.

Professor Anson Mackay co-organised the biennial conference Isotopes in Biogenic Silica at UCL on 5th - 7th May, with George Swann and Virginia Panizzo, both formerly of UCL and now at Nottingham University.

The meeting brought together 50 delegates, including leading researchers to discuss the  role of Silica in the environment.

Keynote talks were given by Dr Patrick Frings (Lund), Dr Heather Stoll (University of Oviedo), Prof Alayne Street-Perrott (Universtiy of Swansea) and Dr Kate Hendry (Universtiy of Bristol).
