Justine Magson assisting BASE scientist Michiel de Kock collect samples earmarked for paleomagnetic studies.

From September 11-14, BVDP scientists Frederick Roelofse and Justine Magson from the University of the Free State, South Africa, and Clement Ndou and Muneiwa Mukwhevo of the South African Council for Geoscience were in Berlin, Germany, to take part in the ICDP BASE project (Barberton Archean Surface Environments) sampling party. This was an excellent opportunity to learn from the sister project and interact with BASE scientists and young researchers. Huge thanks for the invitation from Prof Christoph Heubeck, PI of the BASE project.
