Hello. I am Srikanth. I completed 35y career in Petroleum E&P in India and Abu Dhabi (UAE). Taught Petroleum Geology for 3 years at IIT Bombay, India. My career was divided between Development Geology, Computer Science & Technology. Currently I am developing the 4th Paradigm Geoscience - structure, course and contents. I pursue learning the differences between High-Performance-Sciences like Biosciences and Geoscience. Developing a robust Earth Systems Science is my idea for addressing the challenges in responsibility and accountability to Earth! Look forward to be contributing with usefulness.


Olivier Pourret Thu 5 Mar 2020 9:13AM

Hi all,

my last blog post on preprint

On the interest of preprint – the story of my "Open Access practices in geochemistry" project

thanks Earth ArXiv!




William D. Harcourt Wed 4 Mar 2020 7:49PM

Hi Chris, thanks for the info and looking forward to being a part of this! I run seminars at my institution and it would be great to create a presentation about EarthArXiv and pre-prints when I've got to know the environment a bit better. I'll be sure to ask for some advice and maybe material to help with this!


Bruce Caron Wed 4 Mar 2020 6:30PM

The artwork is up on the Everything stickers thread...


Christopher Jackson Wed 4 Mar 2020 5:59PM

I’m happy to order some stickers for UK people if you can send me the artwork please @Bruce Caron


Bruce Caron Wed 4 Mar 2020 4:51PM

I have a few hundred stickers... I'm looking to pass these to someone from the US going to the EGU...ANYONE? Mailing stickers from the US to other countries is a real pain and expensive. I'm going to start a sticker thread... so hop on there if you want stickers or the artwork to make your own.


Christopher Jackson Wed 4 Mar 2020 3:48PM

Hi all the new folks! Welcome to EarthArXiv; we value your support and energy. As you know, we're currently going through an excting transition in terms of who hosts our platform; we hope this leads to a better service for all users. Until we've settled on where we're going and when, we encourage you to keep talking to friends, colleagues, and co-authors about the value of preprints. The ASAPbio FAQs are a great place to start: https://asapbio.org/preprint-info/preprint-faq. We've also got some EarthArXiv-specific material (e.g. slides, posters); if you'd like some of these, please let me know. Also, @Bruce Caron, might it be possible for us to order more stickers?!?! Thanks!

I work mainly on gravity and magnetic inverse problems and develop a bunch of open-source software as well. More info at https://www.leouieda.com


James King Fri 25 Oct 2019 2:03PM

As part of the original council I look forward to continue to promoting the arxiv.
I am an assistant prof at the Université de Montréal working on the effects of mineral aerosols on climate and ecosystems, mainly coming from fugitive emissions aka dust storms from present measurements/remote sensing, but also looking at these dynamics in past landscapes e.g., LGM using paleoclimatic models.
I am interested in exploring OA options for society level journals and return the power of the pen back these grassroots groups.


Stéphanie Girardclos Fri 25 Oct 2019 9:42AM

Hi all.
I was on the initial EarthArXiv Advisory Council and I'm very happy to continue promoting it. I re-introduce myself for the newcomers.
I'm a sedimentologist (Lecturer) at the University of Geneva working on modern sedimentary environments, mostly lakes. I use sediment cores, high resolution seismic data and multibeam echosounding. My favorite subjects are sublacustrine delta systems and canyons, sublacustrine mass-movements, event beds, and lake tsunamis. I'm also interested in Anthropocene questions.
I promote increased democracy and equity in academia and I like collaborative and Open Access initiatives.


Christopher Jackson Fri 25 Oct 2019 7:22AM

Hi Everyone! Thanks for joining the community. When my busy period of works finishes, which should be in a couple of weeks time, I'll organise a group call to answer any questions you may have. Thanks! chris


Olivier Pourret Fri 25 Oct 2019 6:25AM

Dear Bruce, dear all, nice to meet you all! what a great community! By the way, Bruce, could you tell us more on our role? what can we do as ambassador, moderator...? best


Samantha Teplitzky Wed 23 Oct 2019 3:37PM

Hi everyone! I have a new-ish role as Open Science Librarian at University of California, Berkeley, and subject liaison to the Dept of Earth & Planetary Science. I've worked in Earth/Geoscience librarianship for a while but am excited to be more active in promoting open workflows, particularly preprints!


Jesper Dramsch Tue 22 Oct 2019 7:33PM

Hey folks 👋. I'm currently finishing up my PhD at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) officially working in 4D seismics as I'm a geophysicist by trade. Realistically, I build neural networks and talk about machine learning all day though. Been a visiting scholar in Edinburgh at Heriot-Watt University this year and that was loads of fun. I do some Python teaching, consulting here and there, really like hackathons, collaboration, open science and source and all that jazz.

Twitter and Github are my just name and orcid is of course funky.
And if you're really bored, dramsch.net and the-geophysicist.com are mine.
I'm new to loomio, so please forgive my Noob-ness.


Stanislav Jelavic Tue 22 Oct 2019 6:19PM

Hi everyone! I'm a postdoc at the Globe Institute at the University of Copenhagen. I always like to introduce myself as a mineralogist but I've been told that my knowledge and skills are definitely better explained as geochemist. I'm interested in the interaction between organic compounds and minerals, mainly at the nano and molecular scale. Currently, I'm working on DNA-mineral interactions and how to prevent the spread of antibiotic resistance genes through soils and wastewater. Thanks for having me :)


Victor Venema Tue 22 Oct 2019 3:44PM

I was with EarthArXiv from the start, but am happy to re-introduce myself. I am a climate scientist from The Netherlands, working in Bonn, Germany. Currently I am working on a post-publication journal-independent peer review system. It should make it less important where to publish, in the end also archives would be fine, and thus breaks the power of the scientific publishers.

Help getting this going is welcome.


Leonie Peti Tue 22 Oct 2019 8:38AM

Hi all - I'm currently finishing up my PhD at the University of Auckland on maar lake sediment. I focus mainly on stratigraphy and geochronology with some palaeoclimate and tephra work mixed in. I'm really excited about becoming a part of the community.
