10th Scottish Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry

The Analytical Division (Scottish Region) of the Royal Society of Chemistry will host the 10th Scottish Symposium on Environmental Analytical Chemistry at the University of Glasgow on Wednesday 12th December 2018. The details of our symposium can be found at http://www.rsc.org/events/detail/35767/10th-scottish-symposium-on-environmental-anaytical-chemistry

You, your students and colleagues are warmly invited to attend. Please also feel free to pass on the details to any interested colleagues. 


When and Where: Wednesday 12th December 2018 10:00-18:00

The Wolfson Medical Building, University Avenue, University of Glasgow, Glasgow, G12 8QQ, United Kingdom


This one day symposium is intended as a forum for early-career scientists involved in the development or application of chemical analysis in environmental studies to present their work and meet others in their field. More senior scientists are of course also welcome.


Invited speaker: Prof Richard Evershed, University of Bristol


Title: Milking the residues: molecular and stable isotope signals from human prehistory


Richard Evershed is Professor of Biogeochemistry at the University of Bristol. Elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2010 his research is highly interdisciplinary, applying the principles, techniques, and rigor of organic and analytical chemistry, to tackle questions in the fields of archaeological chemistry, biogeochemistry, and biomolecular palaeontology. All three fields are inextricably linked by his interests in the preservation, recycling, decay and transport processes, impacting on biological materials when they enter the geosphere. He has particular interests in investigating the origins of prehistoric agriculture and the impact of intensive farming on soil and water biogeochemistry.
