Just a reminder that ESRF and ILL are organising a workshop on:

  "Environmental Studies Using Neutron and Synchrotron Facilities"
                        20-21 February, ILL Grenoble, France.

Of course the environment of Grenoble is particularly attractive in 
February (and it is the best time for skiing :-) But there are some very 
real applications of neutron and synchrotron radiation to questions 
relating to the environment.

The topics covered will include: pollution, energy, industrial processing 
and biosphere applications.  For example J. Parise and others will be 
talking about ion-exchangers and catalysts, important for purification and 
chemical processing. G. Fioni and others with speak on nuclear 
transmutation, activation analysis, X-ray spectroscopic analysis... K. Yvon 
and others will describe new kinds of batteries and in-situ X-ray and 
neutron studies of electro-chemistry.

But appropriately we will also have talks from W. Kuhs and others about ice 
and snow !  The full programme and registration forms are available on the 
above WWW pages.
