Lobanov-Rostovsky Lecture: The Origin of the Earth

On Friday 17th May 2019, we invite you to attend the annual Lobanov-Rostovsky Lecture in Planetary Geology. This year’s speaker will be Professor Sir Alex Halliday, recently appointed Director of Columbia University’s Earth Institute. Professor Halliday has been a pioneer in developing mass spectrometry to measure small isotopic variations in everything from meteorites to seawater to living organisms, helping to shed light on the birth and early development of our solar system, the interior workings of the Earth, and the processes that affect Earth’s surface environment. He joined Columbia’s Earth Institute in April 2018, after spending more than a decade at the University of Oxford, during which time he was Head of the Mathematical, Physical and Life Sciences Division. It is a great pleasure to welcome him back to Oxford.

The Lecture: The Origin of the Earth and Moon, will take place at 12 noon in the Main Lecture Theatre of the Oxford Natural History Museum, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PW.

We hope you will be able to join us. The event is free to attend but please register HERE.
