    This MAC Short Course volume will address both the theory behind the phenomenon of cathodoluminescence (CL) and the application of this microscopic technique to all fields of geoscience investigation.

    Aimed at the graduate student, researcher and practicing professional, short course chapters will cover the basics of theory, causes of cathodoluminescence in minerals and materials, instrumentation, recent advances in cathodoluminescence imaging and spectroscopy data collection, and interpretation of spectral responses.

    London's book gives us an excellent and thorough review of the current state of the art in pegmatite studies.


    GAC-MAC meeting will be rolled into the 2015 Joint Assembly to be held in Montreal, May 3-7, 2015

    The Joint Assembly will be the annual meeting for GAC-MAC-CGU as well as the spring meeting for AGU.

    In contrast to the usual GAC-MAC meeting, session proposals will be made directly through the conference website, with the formal call for sessions to be made in August, with an anticipated deadline in October. A reminder will be sent out after the call has been opened; in the meantime, please contact Bill Minarik, meeting MAC Lead Representative, or the Local Organizing committee LOC with questions or suggestions.

    The Local Organizing committee is also soliciting proposals for Field Trips, Workshops, and Short Courses. Arrangement of space and collection of fees will be managed by the LOC, leaving only the material and logistics to the organizers. Field Trips can be before or after the meeting, and can range from one- to multi-day excursions. Workshops and short courses can be before, during, or after the meeting. We especially encourage workshops accessible either to students or to professional continuing education.
