The newest issue of the journal called Stratigraphy has come out. This issue contains new exciting science from all around the world!!
The National Environmental Isotope Facility (NEIF) and BSOCORF are running a competition to create videos explaining one aspect of climate change to a general audience.

Winning videos will be on display on the UKRI stand in the COP26 Green Zone, the highest rated video receives a prize of two fully funded days of analytical time at either NEIF or BOSCORF (core scanning, Argon dates, Radiocarbon dates, Cosmogenic Nuclide dates, stable isotope analysis), for a project of your choice. Put your science at COP26 in video form.

The closing deadline is the 10th October.

Open to any researcher, any institute, any country.
Full details are on the competition website:

Did you know that a new species of Allogromia has a bright orange cytoplasm, a variable number of apertures, and can assume a wide range of shapes? Look at those forams sporting beautiful orange cocktail gowns!

Allogromia arnoldi n. sp is described from Long Key, Florida, USA. The test has a complex fine structure that varies in thickness and consists of a thick inner layer with a “herringbone” fine structure, and a thinner, outer electron-opaque mesh-like layer that occurs in patches.

Article: Allogromia arnoldi n. sp.: distribution, phylogenetic placement, culture methods, and fine structure of a new monothalamid foraminiferan. Susan Goldstein, Deniz Altin Ballero, Elizabeth A. Richardson, and Samuel S. Bowser . Journal of Foraminiferal Research. V. 52, N. 3 (JULY 2022)

Figure. Living Allogromia arnoldi. 1, 2 Individual living on a mat of the cyanobacterium Spirulina major. Foraminifera (arrows) clear an area in the mat around the cell body using their extensive reticulopodial nets. Scale on the left is in whole and half mm. 3–6 Bright orange individuals of A. arnoldi on a cyanobacterial mat, each with two or more apertures. Largest individuals ~1 mm. 7 Side view of an apertural opening (Ap) through which reticulopodia (Rp) are extruded. This individual is ingesting strands of S. major (note the characteristic corkscrew-shaped photosynthetic lamellae; arrows).

Psychology in outcrop studies: heuristic biases – our ‘best’ enemies? 03/01/2022

Check out our latest blog on psychology in outcrop studies by Ramon Lopez!

Psychology in outcrop studies: heuristic biases – our ‘best’ enemies? There are not many scientific publications that tackle the issue of subjectivity in geological studies and its impact. In one of them, Baddeley et al. (2004), they state it clearly in some sentences: “the judgements of experts can be biased by their use of heuristics to guide the formation of thei...

Sediment in the deep ocean. Part 2: thermohaline currents that shape the seafloor 02/09/2021

Latest blog by Ramon Lopez! Read about deep sea currents part 2 🤓

Sediment in the deep ocean. Part 2: thermohaline currents that shape the seafloor In Part 1 we differentiated between (1) shallow-marine tide-related currents from (2) purely gravitational sediment-laden currents. We could add that the former are periodic, as they are controlled by the effect of the Moon and Sun gravitational fields on the oceanic water as the Earth revolves, whi...

Get to know the newly established platform! - a blog by Christian Zeeden, David De Vleeschouwer and Matthias Sinnesael – an online learning platform for cyclostratigraphy Cyclostratigraphers aim to read and understand the effect of climate-driven orbital changes in the geological record through time. In doing so, they start from an important prerequisite: An imprint of insolation variations caused by Earth’s orbital eccentricity, obliquity and/or precession (Milank...

Possible poriferan body fossils in early Neoproterozoic microbial reefs - Nature 30/07/2021

The microstructure, identified in Neoproterozoic sediments in northeast Canada, could represent the oldest body-fossil evidence of animals known to date.

Possible poriferan body fossils in early Neoproterozoic microbial reefs - Nature Vermiform microstructure in microbial reefs dating to approximately 890 million years ago resembles the body fossils of Phanerozoic demosponges, and may represent the earliest known physical evidence of animals.

Sedimentology – towards a disciplinary crisis? 05/07/2021

Latest blog by our former SSP Division president Helmut Weissert on the historic and modern role of :

Sedimentology – towards a disciplinary crisis? This contribution adds to earlier articles on impact of global change on sedimentology and on the changing role of sedimentologists in a society moving towards a carbon-free energy future (e.g. Simmons and Davies, 2020, SSP BLOG). Sedimentology is a child of the Age of Petroleum. And, the success st...
