Hazen, Morrison, and Ostroverkohva invited presentations in Russia, July 2019

Robert Hazen, Shaunna Morrison, and Alexandra Ostroverkhova were invited by Dr. Sergey Krivovichev (Kola Science Center, Russian Academy of Science) to present their work on data-driven discovery in mineral systems at the XIX Meeting on Crystal Chemistry, XRD and Spectroscopy in Apatity, Kola Peninsula, Russia. Krivovichev pioneering a new field of chemical and structural complexity of minerals - converting the chemistry and symmetry of minerals into bits of information upon which we can perform statistical analyses regarding changes in mineralogical complexity through deep time.
