11th to 13rd of June2012, Nancy (France)
Geo-Raman meetings started in Paris in 1986 followed by Toulouse (1989) and Nantes (1996). The meeting moved out of France for the first time in 1999 (Valladolid-Spain) and continued a wide international journey, Prague 2002, Hawaii 2004, Granada 2006, Gent 2008 and Sydney 2010. They are focused on the application of Raman Spectroscopy to Earth Sciences from the surface to the deep mantle and to earth materials used in cultural heritage. Such meetings are typically interdisciplinary and allow Earth scientists and Raman spectroscopists to present their latest results obtained in these disciplines and discuss transversally. Raman instrumentation and in situ experimentation are also a part of such meetings since this optical spectroscopy in a huge variety of environment including the exploration of planet of the solar system.
For the first time, an international school supported by the European Mineralogical Union will be held. This is a response to the increasing use of this non-trivial spectroscopy in the different disciplines of Earth sciences facilitated by “plug and play” instruments whereas students in Earth Sciences have rarely the possibility to learn this spectroscopy during their education at the university
