 SENSE ::
After several decades of major developments within biology and geology it is time to intensify the interaction between these two disciplines in order to further our knowledge of processes that determine the functioning of our planet.
This session will target a combination of representatives from ministries, local authorities, and other stakeholders as well as the scientific community in an attempt to highlight some issues that are directly related to the so-called “Kenniseconomie”.
Since research schools and institutes already provide ample opportunity for scientific discussions among specialists in the individual disciplines, the NAC conferences aim to provide a true interdisciplinary forum for young researchers to present their results in a way that is accessible to a broad audience.

 KNAW > News > Press releases
The Netherlands is an international leader in the field of biogeology, but the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) believes that there is ample scope to boost its reputation even further.
Biogeology is a rapidly expanding discipline which views global, regional and local ecosystems within the context of a changing earth system.
The foresight study was conducted by a committee chaired by Dr Bert van der Zwaan, professor of biogeology at the universities of Nijmegen and Utrecht.

Preston Cloud, a biogeology professor at UCSB, received one of 142 NASA research grants to examine lunar rocks.
Cloud received 7.1 grams of powdery, fl "dust," three transparent slices of broken and re-cemented rock called breccia, and later received other chips of rock.
Cloud said the possibility of finding any evidence of life was one in a billion, but that he would check for traces of life anyway.

 Stratigraphy and Paleontology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The general research aim of the group in Stratigraphy/Paleontology is to contribute to the understanding of key paleoenvironmental changes in the geological past.
Our group participates in two Dutch top research schools (ISES and the Darwin Center for Biogeology), and has considerable expertise in (fossil) foraminifera and smaller mammals of circum-Mediterranean regions including parts of the Atlantic and Indian Ocean.
Additional focus is the biogeology of the microbial-meiofaunal (foraminiferal) connection in benthic ecosystems and how it impacts on the global biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen and phosphorous.

These include: historical perspective of biological evolution; cultural aspects of exobiology, cosmic, chemical and biological evolution, molecular biology, geochronology, biogeochemistry, biogeology, and planetology.
Other subjects in the frontier of exobiology are reviewed, such as the search for planets outside the solar system, and the possible manifestation of intelligence in those new potential environments.
Audience: Graduate students and researchers in the many areas of basic, earth, and life sciences that contribute to the study of chemical evolution and the origin, evolution and distribution of life in the universe.

The Darwin Center for Biogeology is a virtual Dutch research institute, partially funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), which aims at performing cutting-edge science in the central field of Biogeology where Biology and Earth Sciences meet.
Its research mission is to understand the functioning of global, regional and local ecosystems, focusing on change and feedback at all time scales in and between biotic and abiotic components of a changing Earth.
The research will be carried out within the Department of Paleoclimatology and Geomorphology, Faculty of Earth and Life Sciences, Free University, in close co-operation with the other partners in the programme.

 Three faculty named to NAS - MIT News Office
The three were elected "in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research." The total number of active members in the NAS is now 1,907; the total number of foreign associates is 330.
Grotzinger's research interests include sedimentary geology, tectonics and sedimentation, numerical simulation of depositional systems, biogeology and earth history.
He is especially interested in using the stratigraphic record to understand the large-scale processes that operated during the early history of the earth.

Environmental Biogeology of Aquatic Ecosystem:In the Case of the Rivers in Kanazawa
Smectite gradually decreased with the increasing ofkaolin minerals from upstream to downstream, suggesting that these clay minerals could have reacted with drainage water by cations exchange and affected partially the pH of river water.Contributions of bacteria and clay minerals in the remediation of polluted riverwater have been proved through this study.

 Applications   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Structural geology has a staggering number of applications to solving problems in other disciplines.
Structural geology is relevant to problems in mineral exploration and exploitation, petroleum geology, engineering geology, environmental geology, hydrogeology, surficial geology and geomorphology, petrology, geoarchaeology, climate studies, planetary geology, sedimentary geology, tectonics, glaciology, biogeology, and other areas.
Our task is to seek out and stimulate the development of resources that illustrate how the techniques and perspectives of structural geology can be used in solving problems in other disciplines, especially ones such as those listed above that are not traditionally linked to structural geology.
