Welcome to the forum, Chloe. Thank you for joining, and telling us where you are.

We have a lot of lurkers here, which I have trouble figuring out.

Two geologists? I never would have expected that.

My brother took longer than normal to get his masters and doctorate; by the time he finished up, the bottom had dropped out of the petro industry and the overflow geologists flooded the market in academia, where he really wanted to be.

After a long, tough time, he's found a teaching job that he really seems to love. Good thing too; I think he's really cut out to be a teacher. And as you say, paleo makes a nice hobby. He's had quite a bit published in that area. I'll stop bragging and let you look if you like. <g>

Small world, eh? I blogged about that very bit of the coast a while ago.

(I was a hard rock specialist, so fossil identification isn't my strong point. You may wonder why I ended up living on one of the best-known localities for sedimentologists and palaeontologists!)

Wow there are a lot of scientists on here!
And here was me thinking I'd be the weirdo, the odd one out!

I'm studying chemistry myself, hoping to get into research for alternative fuels. It's a growing market obviously, and being in Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe, what better place to do it in?

Thank you for your warm welcomes everyone.

And never the twain shall meet! I remember how hard I found it as a technical librarian, moving from hard rock (copper/lead/zinc) to the petroleum industry in 1985.
