Technical editor - Goodbye Bo!
With this issue of Nanno News, we say goodbye and many thanks to Bohumil Harmsmid, who for many years has filled the role of technical editor of the Journal of Nannoplankton Research in the Czech Republic. Bo is putting on a new hat at the end of March, when he leaves for Africa as a member of the diplomatic service (!). Starting with the publication of the summer issue, JNR will be published by Cambridge University Press in England. With the publication of the summer issue, Jackie Lees will be taking on the joint role of scientific and technical editor. She asks you to please bear in mind that there will doubtless be "teething problems" associated with the move and to be patient. Anyone submitting a manuscript can help Jackie out by making sure that the manuscript is clean, legible, and in the correct format. Having one or two colleagues read and offer corrections to the manuscript before sending it to JNR goes a long way towards speeding up the process (and saves Jackie time!). So anyway, thanks to Bo for all his work in the past, and good luck on his new career path!

Bibliographer - Goodbye Bill/Hello Mario & Co!
With the advent of INA 9, Bill Siesser stepped down from his long-time role of Bibliographer. Bill has tirelessly compiled calcareous nannofossil references for us for the past 13 years, longer than any other INA member! Stepping in to fill this formidable position is Mario Cachao, along with a host of students and technicians from Portugal. Mario has also enlisted the aid of Ric Jordan (Japan) and Fatemah Hadavi (Iran) to help compile articles and references from Asia and the Middle East, respectively. So, if you have a new article that needs to be listed in the JNR, please send a copy to Mario at:
Mario Cachao
Dept. and Centre of Geology
University of Lisbon
R. Politecnica 58
1250-102 Lisbon
Once again, thanks to Bill for all his hard work and unfailing enthusiasm and kudos to Mario, Ric and Fatemah for taking on this difficult task!

September, 2002, found old friends and new back together again after two years in beautiful Parma, Italy for the 9th International Nannoplankton Association meeting. Giuliana Villa outdid herself as organizer of this meeting! From a wonderful ice-breaker party (which, unfortunately, I missed but I heard was fun!) to a piano and soprano recital in the beautiful Biblioteca Palatina, we were treated to not only a top-notch scientific venue, but a real cultural experience as well. The city of Parma is a lovely blend of traditional, as exemplified by the meeting venue at Aula Magna for the first two days, to contemporary, which we experienced at the Earth Science Department, University Campus for the last three days of the meeting. From a guided tour of the medieval Torrechiara Castle (where they filmed the movie Lady Hawke), to the spectacular Magnani-Rocco Art collection, there wasn't a dull moment. And yes, the tour of the Parma Ham producer was perhaps a little strange, but I learned a lot and must say I have a greater appreciation for the time it takes to produce the tasty ham!
Listed below is a brief summary of the posters, talks and the field trip for those who weren't able to make it this time around. A few pictures have been added to show you what you missed out on and to tempt you to try to make the pilgrimage in 2004 to Lisbon, Portugal where Mario Cachao has offered to host INA 10. It promises to be a wonderful meeting and, as usual, is most important in that it allows our worldwide community the chance to get together, share ideas and thoughts, make new friends, and pound back a few drinks with the friends we made the time before! So, thanks again to Giuliana and her wonderful committee (Giuliana Fontanesi, Davide Persico, Giovanna Gianelli, and Sandra Gaboardi) for an absolutely wonderful meeting. Ciao!

As usual, the talks given at INA covered a fairly broad spectrum of topics and I found myself as enamored of the biostratigraphy of the mid-Campanian north-western Australian margin (Cambell) as of genotypic variation in global coccolithophorid species (Geisen). The meeting started off by tackling the Mesozoic, and talks covered Toarcian (Perilli & Duarte) through Coniacian (Howe & Sikora) biostratigraphy, temporal distribution and events. The Tertiary was tackled on the morning of the second day of the conference, and covered Paleocene (Backman et al.) through Oligocene (Rai) biostratigraphy, paleoecology, and paleoenvironment of regions as disparate as the Mediterranean and the Antarctic. In a slightly different approach to organization, the remainder of the talks were lumped together based on topic rather than on age. Thus, broad topics such as nannoplankton evolution and paleoecology (Tremolada; Andruleit et al., to name a few), carbonate flux through time and space (Beaufort), nannoplankton as climate proxies (Mattioli & Pittet) and nannoplankton and criticial events (Erba; Herrle et al.) allowed for a wide variety of talks to fall under one umbrella and made for (I think!) a very interesting couple of days. While talks at INA are always presented formally, the atmosphere at the meetings is always relaxed and questions are always encouraged. For those of you new to INA, I hope these presentations gave you a chance to put faces to names that may be familiar to you. I also hope you took the opportunity (as I did) of exploring subjects that, for lack of time or because of work restraints, you may not otherwise be familiar with. There was ample variety to choose from, and as always, I returned home impressed by the broad spectrum of topics that are being investigated.

Poster Presentations
About 55 posters were presented at INA 9, ranging from Jurassic biostratigraphy to the secret life of Helicosphaera carteri, and from atomic force microscopy on coccoliths to ocean anoxic events. Posters were presented in the historic Aula Magna, in the centre of the beautiful city of Parma, on Monday and Tuesday, and then in the modern Dipartimento de Scienze della Terra on the main campus of the University, on Wednesday and Thursday. Each person presenting a poster gave a three minute talk, summarising their poster. A great side-benefit of this was that everyone got to see who the authors of the posters actually were. For INA first-timers, who weren't familiar with many nanno personalities, this was a chance to put faces to names from papers they'd read, and for INA regulars, it was a chance to see who the newcomers were. As always, the poster sessions provided an informal venue for meeting new people, and catching up with old friends, as well as the exchange and discussion of ideas. At INA9, for the first time, an award was made by the INA committee for the best student poster. The award was presented by INA President Woody Wise in the last session of talks on Thursday, to Elisa Malinverno for her excellent poster "Morphological variability within the genus Calciosolenia, and its relationship to the genus Anoplosolenia: extant coccolithophorids from the eastern Meditteranean".

Post-Conference Fieldtrip
Shortly following the final INA9 presentation, a group of 26 participants boarded a coach bound for the Ligurian coast and the seaside town of Monterosso. From Parma the coach crossed the spectacular Northern Apennines affording views of mountain peaks and alpine villages. We arrived in Monterosso at about 5:00pm and were led to our hotel via a tunnel carved into an imposing coastal cliff and past a church constructed of blocks of marble and ophiolite. A number of the group headed to the beach and took the opportunity to take a dunk in the salty waters of the Ligurian Sea before dinner was served at the hotel. In the morning, Giuliana ushered us down to the nearest jetty where we stepped aboard a boat that took us slowly down the coastline from Monterosso to Portovenere. From the water we had an unobstructed view of Tuscan Domain stratigraphy as the boat cruised down-section from the Oligo-Miocene Macigno turbiditic sandstones to the Upper Triassic limestones of the La Spezia Formation. The group was able to take a closer look at the Macigno sandstones when we disembarded at the village of Manarola and walked along a 3.5 km long cliff pathway to the next village of Riomaggiore. The Macigno sandstones are intensely folded along the path (known as Via dell'Amore) and participants were also able to examine smaller scale sedimentary structures and lithological changes in the succession. Before boarding the boat again at Riomaggiore, the group bid farewell to two of the party, Jackie Lees and Paul Bown, before continuing the cruise to Portovenere. A number of units were exposed between Riomaggiore and Portovenere, including the Cenomanian-Oligocene calcarentite of the Scisti Policromi, the Tithonian-Neocomain limestones of the Maiolica, and additional Jurassic and Triassic carbonate formations. The boat trip finished at Portovenere where we had magnificent views of the Portovenere Castle built above the dark grey Portovenere-Portoro limestones of the Norian-Rhaetian La Spezia Formation. After a stroll around the castle and a late lunch in Portovenere, we caught the coach back across the Apennines to Parma. Along the way, Giuliana pointed out the Campanian Salti del Diavolo conglomeratic unit that crops out in a belt from the Torino region to the Modena Province. On behalf of all the participants, I would like to thank Giuliana for organizing an interesting and most enjoyable post-conference fieldtrip!

Industry News
I debated for a while on how to write this column without making it look like an advertisement for a commercial product. I finally decided that it doesn't matter. The theme of this column is industry. The whole object of industry is selling products. I happen to think this one is cool. If there's another product you have similar feelings about, please let me know. I will give equal time to any competing product if anyone is interested in informing me of one. I'm always looking for feedback that contributes to future columns.

When I was coming up in the oil industry, the majors had big paleo staffs with legions of folks looking down the scope and doing interpretations. Each region had its staff and local experts abounded. During the 1980's and 1990's, things changed dramatically. Those of us employed as biostratigraphers by the majors are now considered coordinators. Looking at fossils is a rare treat, as most such work is contracted out. We're also expected to be experts in a wide variety of fossil groups, and we are often asked to evaluate work from distant basins with which we are unfamiliar. Management has little appreciation for my being a nannofossil worker rather than say, a palynologist. Such distinctions are largely lost on many of them. A fossil's a fossil...right? Another problem we are faced with is "words on paper" paleo reports that we are expected to evaluate. Often people we don't know working in places we know little about author these reports.

Fortunately, in recent years expert software has stepped in to help out in this situation. One such program that is particularly intriguing is Peter Thompson's Computational Biochronology . Peter was a Research Associate at Lamont Earth Observatory from 1972-1981 and a Research Geologist at ARCO Exploration & Production Technology Company from 1981-1998. At present, he is the owner of Computational Biochronology. His program consists of an Internet database on a PC platform driven by a graphic interface. The current release includes over 60,000 foraminiferal and more than 10,000 calcareous nannofossil entries from Triassic to Recent. Subsequent releases will include dinoflagellates, palynomorphs and ostracods. Each species entry incorporates published records of generic assignment, the author's zonal limits, paleoecological interpretation, geographic location, and a full citation. Synonymy is managed by use of an 8-character computer code placed on related species. The purpose of the program is to allow the specialist biostratigraphic coordinator who may have a limited library, or who is not familiar with an interval of the geologic column or a particular fossil group, to obtain a rapid first pass interpretation from a dataset. The program determines an age for each sample based on each fossil group and identifies possible caved or reworked taxa. The sample ages for each fossil group are then merged and the combined set is smoothed for an overall age trend. A paleobathymetry function can also construct a basic sea level curve using foraminiferal data scaled to the age points. Output from the computations can be viewed as text file spreadsheets or exported to various graphic displays.
This program and others like it promise to be a useful tool in the hands of industry biostratigraphic coordinators. If you'd like to know more contact Peter at

The Silverpit Meteorite Crater - Dave Jutson
Using 3D seismic data from hydrocarbon exploration, two petroleum geosceintists have discovered a possible 20 kilometre wide multi-ringed impact crater deep beneath the floor of the southern North Sea (Stewart & Allen, 2002). It has been named Silverpit Crater after the nearby fishing grounds. The estimated the age of the crater is between 60 and 65 million years old; close to, if not at, the K/T boundary. The structure has at least ten distinctive concentric rings located between 2 and 10 km from the crater centre, and is well preserved below several hundred metres of post-impact Tertiary strata.

As the age of the impact is thought to be close to the K/T boundary, interest in the exact age of impact is great. In 1985 and 1993, two hydrocarbon exploration wells were drilled within the rings of the then undiscovered crater and micropalaeontological investigation of samples from these wells is currently being carried out by Mike Bidgood and Ben Johnson (foraminifera) and David Jutson (nannofossils).

The available samples were extremely small splits (<15 grams) of ditch-cuttings which had to be divided between both disciplines. Since they are ditch cuttings, they are heavily contaminated by material that had caved down the drilled hole. For instance, a sample from the Cretaceous Chalk may contain a very well-preserved Lower Eocene assemblage, which was first observed some way up the well. The spacing of samples is also problematic. In well 43/24-3, furthest from the centre of the crater, samples are at 50 feet intervals. The other well (43/25-1) is (slightly) better with only 20 foot sample spacing.

Foraminiferal analysis has been disappointing as the recovery from the processed material was poor, but nannofossil recovery was better and a stratigraphy can be defined. Some of the nannofossil specimens showed possible signs of shock damage (see Self-Trail, 2002), and if this is found to be correct, it may help determine the age of the impact.
The provisional results suggest that the impact may have been slightly after the K/T boundary event, but this has yet to be confirmed.

Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils: Call for Submission of Reprints
Publication of the Catalogue of Calcareous Nannofossils will be resumed with computer support. Thanks to the software developed by Mitch Covington (Nannoware/Bugcam), I will be able to produce a new volume of the Catalogue as a CD-ROM. It should be ready before the next INA Conference, to be held in 2004 in Lisbon, Portugal. It will therefore be on sale there, and, depending on the response obtained, I will eventually start scanning in the volumes published in the past, in order to make all the material available on computer support.

To fulfil this task, the original publications are necessary, because complete descriptions, bibliographical reference and information concerning newly erected taxa must be checked. Original publications are essential in order to obtain good quality pictures. Since I do not have access to a large library, I invite everybody to send me (at the address below) reprints of papers in which new genera, species and subspecies have been erected. Since the last volume of the hard copy Catalogue was published in 1989 and the material it contained has already been collected, I suggest you send me papers published in the last 15 years, unless you are aware that the taxa you have erected has been included in a previous Catalogue.

If you already have pictures and/or descriptions on a computer file, please e-mail them to me at the following address: However, I will not be able to include your taxa in the Catalogue unless I get the original reprint.
Thank you for your co-operation and I hope to see you at INA10.

An oil industry novel
Dave Jutson
is the proud author of a new novel that centers around well drilling in real time. It can be viewed (and bought) from this ebooks website. Although the book doesn't touch industrial biostratigraphy, it gives a very good description of work at the wellsite. The first 12 chapters are based around drilling a well in real time-that is, for example, when there is a drill break, the first sample doesn't come up for an hour during which period the plot has continued. Dave says he has made it as geologically realistic and work environment realistic as possible. So check it out (I'm told it fits well on a laptop, which gives you something to read while traveling by train or air!).
