A series of breakout sessions will be running throughout the conference that will allow academics and esteemed colleagues to ‘put their heads together’ and horizon scan. If you would like to propose a breakout session please contact Darren Mark ASAP (Darren.Mark@glasgow.ac.uk).

Science opportunities from UK meteorite searches in Antarctica

Geoff Evatt & Katie Joy (University of Manchester)
A UK led mission to Antarctica has been funded by the Leverhulme Trust and supported by the British Antarctic Survey. The project will test technology to locate potentially buried sub-surface ice meteorites and recover both surface and buried meteorites A recon team will operate 2018-2019 and a main search team will operate in 2019-2020.
