International Conference on Rock Magnetism 2017

Organizing institution
Utrecht University, Faculty of Geosciences (UU)
Course code
Course fee
€ 300
PhD level

The ICRM 2017 brings together present and future leaders in the fields of rock and mineral magnetism, and its applications in global geophysics, tectonics, extraterrestrial magnetism, and surficial environmental studies.

The ICRM 2017 is a joint initiative of the Institute for Rock Magnetism, Paleomagnetic Laboratory Fort Hoofddijk and other European partner institutions and will replace the IRM’s biennial Santa Fe conference in 2017. As with regular Santa Fe meetings, we plan a very informal meeting with one oral session at a time and ample time for open discussion and poster presentations. We foresee a spirit similar to that of earlier Santa Fe meetings that were hosted at European venues, including the Erice (Italy, 2002) and Cargèse (France, 2008) meetings. We will also celebrate the career of Cor Langereis.

The registration and payment deadline for this conference is the 1st of March 2017
