MSc student Amanda Smith’s colourful photomicrograph of talc as viewed through a petrographic microscope with crossed polars graced the cover of the issue. BSc honours student Monet Streit’s photomicrograph of a clastic sedimentary rock entitled “What makes the sidewalks sparkle” appears on page10.

Congratulations to Tim Webster, recipient of the 2022 Discovery Centre Public Impact Award, for his research in Geomatics.
