Mineral Physics Group

This group was set up in 1996 and has the aim of advancing the understanding of the fundamental physical and chemical processes that determine the properties of minerals. This is done by stimulating interest in mineral physics, facilitating the exchange of information between members of the Group and with other mineral physicists, and by running meetings where current research is discussed. Further details about the group are available from the Secretary, Dr Geoff Bromiley at: geoffrey.bromiley@ed.ac.uk
