Marine Studies Group
The Marine Studies Group (MSG) represents the marine geoscience community within the Geological Society and acts as the Society's agent in this field. The MSG provides a focus for all marine Earth scientists and promotes the exchange of ideas within the broader marine science and industry communities. The MSG aims to encourage research in, and teaching and public understanding of, marine geoscience by:
- arranging scientific meetings and workshops (often held jointly with other science and technology groups) to promote exchange of information about, and in-depth study of topical aspects of the science
- organising an annual meeting for marine geoscience postgraduates to present the results of their research
- publication of conference papers in the Society's journals and Special Publications
- providing a forum for exchange of ideas within the community.

Postgraduate Research in Marine & Earth Sciences Conferences
The Postgraduate Research in Marine and Earth Sciences (PRMES13) Conference was re-launched in November 2013. The event was organised by the Marine Studies Group (MSG) of the Geological Society and the Marine Geosciences Group of the National Oceanography Centre who hosted the meeting.
The MSG sponsored 3 prizes. Congratulations go to:
Kimberley Pyle, University of Cardiff. Diatoms, Sea Ice, and Mixing: What Controls Barium Cycling in the Southern Ocean?
Rosie Sheward, University of Southampton
Morphometric responses of coccolithophores to Paleogene environmental change
Early PhD Presentation winner:
Sebastian Pitman, University of Southampton
Formation, persistence and spacing of rip channels in different coastal environments
80 people attended the conference, from all over the country, and there were 36 presentations and 44 posters. There was lots of twitter and Facebook activity and a good time was had by all. Thanks go to everyone who attended the Conference, keynote speakers Professor Julian Dowdeswell (Scott Polar Institute, University of Cambridge) and Professor Gillian Foulger (Durham University). Thanks especially to Dr Tim Le Bas and his team at the NOC for organising and hosting the event.
The PRMES14 meeting will be held in Oban towards the end of the year.
