Why are you excited about participating in IMA2018?
I am excited to help organise a session in honour of my friend bear McPhail, who died tragically this year.

Session: D.C. Bear McPhail Memorial Symposium – a celebration of Bear’s legacy as a scientist and mentor

Prof. Bear McPhail left us suddenly on March 12, 2017. This session celebrates Bear’s extensive scientific contribution to the broader field of geochemistry (experimental geochemistry; regolith; groundwater; and so many others). We in particular welcome contributions by students and colleagues celebrating Bear’s legacy as a mentor and inspiration. Vale Bear.
