Mineralogy-Petrology-Geochemistry Community Discussion Board
The fields of Mineralogy, Petrology and Geochemistry have made significant contributions to the geosciences, the larger scientific enterprise, and to society. Please submit your recommendations of the most important breakthroughs in the fields of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry to geoscience research including the methodologies, techniques, discoveries, impacts, benefits, and the scientists who have made significant new contributions.
To contribute a submission,
you may either start a new thread, or add additional information to an existing thread. Simply start a new thread by using the tab below, or browse through the archive and add a new comment to any of the previously defined topics. Mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry are an integral part of the geosciences, and we need to proactively demonstrate our accomplishments to our peers in related geo-disciplines, to the larger science community, and to funding and other advisory agencies. Please contribute in a positive manner to help ensure the long-term health of the mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry disciplines.

Why was this site developed? How will the responses be used? This discussion board was developed in response to the discussions on the MSA email list regarding the exclusion of mineralogy in the list of geoscience disciplines recognized by the US National Research Council. The intent of this site is to aggregate evidence of the significant contributions made by these disciplines. The results will be compiled in a "white paper" that can be disseminated through professional societies and to NRC, NSF, other funding agencies, and to geoscience departments at colleges and universities to demonstrate the importance, relevance and centrality of mineralogy, petrology and geochemistry to the geosciences and beyond. Questions and comments, please contact David Mogk (Mogk AT montana.edu), Dept. Earth Sciences, Montana State University, USA.
