Guest Posts

Dear readers and visitors,

Happy New Year! Thank you for taking the time to read my posts over the past orbital period; I hope you’ve enjoyed reading them as much as I have writing them. I’ve had a rather busy few months, and as my PhD thesis looms large this year, the frequency of my posts have declined somewhat, and for this I apologise.

To make it up to you,  I hope to supply you all with some excellent guest features from other researchers and writers over the next few months whilst I’m distracted elsewhere. I’ll kick things off tomorrow (January 3rd) with a guest post on ‘Climate Sensitivity’ from Dr David Waltham, a Reader in Mathematical Geology at Royal Holloway, University of London.

If you, or someone you know, would like to write a piece for II-I- please send an email to with your ideas! It would be great to hear from you.

All the best, and thanks again for reading.



The European Association of Geochemistry Blog

The new blog by the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG), the body that promotes geochemistry and earth sciences in Europe and organises the annual Goldschmidt conference in partnership with its American counterpart, the Geochemical Society, launched last week. I was humbled to be asked to write an article for the launch, and perhaps contribute more regularly too, an offer which I gratefully accepted. I’ll still post regularly on here in the same vein as always, but also ply my wares over at the new blog too.

Have a read of this article for an overview of the new blog. My first post is on the astrobiological potential of Jupiter’s esoteric moon Europa, and can be found here.
