Scope and Format
This five-day spring school is set up for researchers (Ph.D students, post-doctoral reseachers) who are interested in the nature and dynamics of iron and iron minerals in natural environments. It will deal with iron in soils, sediments, surface and ground water, and geological systems.
Reviews on iron minerals and their environmental significance, as well as on the principles and state of the art of analytical techniques will be presented.
The course will be given by more than ten invited speakers and a selected number of specific research topics will be presented by participants as oral and/or poster presentation. A mid-course field trip is also scheduled.
This school is sponsored (travel and accommodation) by the ESF through the FIMIN network. The number of participants is limited to about 25, to be selected from the applicants on the basis of curriculum vitae, research achievements and projects, and motivation expressed in their applications.
Preference (but not exclusivity) will be given to citizens of countries contributing to the FIMIN Programme.
