Semana Mundial del Espacio: Jornada de Puertas abiertas en la Unidad Asociada UVa-CSIC-CAB

La Semana Mundial del Espacio (WSW, por su siglas en inglés), un evento anual que celebra la ciencia, la tecnología, y el espacio en todo el mundo, se celebrara entre el 4 y el 10 de Octubre proximos.

El 8 de octubre se realizara una jornada de puertas abiertas en la Unidad Asociada UVa-CSIC-CAB, ubicada en el Parque Tecnológico de Boecillo. Allí, en turno de mañana (de 10:00 a 13:00 horas) y de tarde (de 16:00 a 18:00 horas), el público asistente podrá conocer la ciencia que se desarrolla en torno al instrumento Raman Laser Spectrometer que volará a Marte a bordo de la misión ExoMars de la ESA en 2018 y que analizará las características geoquímicas del planeta rojo.

This conference brings together international specialists in petrology, geochemistry, geophysics, geology, and astronomy to present the latest results of research in planetary science. The five-day conference will be organized by topical symposia and problem-oriented sessions.

We had several communications in this edition:

  • COMPACT REMOTE RAMAN-LIBS INSTRUMENT FOR MARS OR TITAN. Abstract Poster
    [*]IDENTIFICATION OF IRON SULFATES BY RAMAN SPECTROSCOPY. OUTCOMES ON THE MISSIONS TO MARS.
    Abstract Poster
    [*]A MICRO RAMAN STUDY OF THE ERUPTED PYROCLASTS FROM EL HIERRO (SPAIN).Abstract Poster
    [*]EVAPORATION PATHWAYS AND SOLUBILITY OF FE-CA-MG-RICH SALTS IN ACID SULFATE WATERS. A MODEL FOR MARTIAN ANCIENT SURFACE WATERS.Abstract Poster

GEO-RAMAN Xth MEETING

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

The five-day meeting was organized in parallel sessions of oral and poster presentations as well as workshops related to research, teaching and outreach in the planetary sciences.
We had two communications in this edition:
