Deep Carbon Observatory

RockMagnetist is a Visiting Scholar at the Deep Carbon Observatory for 2017-2018, improving Wikipedia’s coverage of topics relevant to deep carbon science. He is a long-time contributor and administrator; if you’ve read about geophysics-related subjects on Wikipedia, there’s a very good chance you could find his username somewhere in the articles’ edit histories. Outside of Wikipedia, he is an Associate Research Professor in the Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences department at North Carolina State University, specializing in rock magnetism.

Highlights: extraterrestrial diamonds, list of mineralogists, Mark S. Ghiorso, organic mineral.
