A message from the President
I hope you all managed to take some time off this summer. I had a great time down in the Dordogne. I last visited the area when I was twelve; back then I spent most of my time digging fossils out of the soft limestone. I am not a geologist but I still find these rocks fascinating. Although I know a bit more about these rocks than I did when a youngster, limestone are a challenge for the petrophysicist. If you want to know more about these rocks please attend our Carbonates III one day seminar at the Geological Society on Thursday 16th September, see this newsletter for more details. The Monday (13th September) of that week we return from our summer break to continue our programme of evening talks. Prof. Mike Lovell from Leicester University will be talking about gas hydrates. Mike is an excellent speaker. The evening meetings are free and all are welcome.
A few of the LPS Committee will be leaving in the next few months. The LPS is run by volunteers. The work of the committee is not too demanding or onerous. If you are able to help, please contact any of the committee.
