Small step by small step
While we are waiting for review of manuscript with our first measurements on zircons some of research approaches and methods that we try to implement in this project were successfully published.
Zircons in space
We are working on separation of zircon and apatite grains from igneous rocks using all sort of methods. Use of optical equipment results with "funny" but attractive (even space-look) pictures. Enjoy!
For sure we will enjoy playing with laser next week ;-) "May the Force be with us!”

We are pleased to inform you about the acceptance of your following Abstract for the EGU General Assembly 2018: EGU2018-3843 REE and trace elements patterns of apatite from a diorite at Mt. Papuk, Croatia by Dražen Balen et al. accepted in Session GMPV2.1 – Trace elements and isotopes: the markers of geological change
We are pleased to inform you about the acceptance of your following Abstract for the EGU General Assembly 2018: EGU2018-3851 Morphology of zircons from the Pannonian Basin basement (Croatia) as a tracer of hot magma chambers by Petra Schneider et al. accepted in Session TS7.4/GD5.5 – Geodynamics of Subduction and Continent Collision - comparison of ancient and modern collision orogens (co-organized)

At December 6th 2017. we had another brainstorming in quite pleasant environment. Devoted to quick adjustements of plans and traditional request from boss to keep pace with plan(s). Promises, and more promises. it's Xmass time isn't it? :-)
Our research on the Cretaceous rocks and events have a lot of side results esspecially on hangingwall and footwall parts. They in some cases can be relatively fast in publishing process. However, although such results are not directly related to the project topic and aims, we can proudly announced that have another one manuscript that bites the dust. Congrats to the authors!

2017 GSA Annual Meeting, Seattle, USA
Blanka Cvetko Tešović Igor Vlahović The abstracts: FACIES AND STRATIGRAPHY OF THE LATEST CRETACEOUS TO EARLIEST PALEOGENE PLATFORM CARBONATE SUCCESSION WITH CORAL PATCH REEFS: THE ISLAND OF BRAč, CROATIA has been accepted for oral presentation in session titled “D22. From Processes to Stratigraphy" PROBABLE CONNECTIONS OF THE MESOZOIC ADRIATIC CARBONATE PLATFORM WITH SURROUNDING CONTINENTAL AREAS AS INDICATED BY DINOSAUR TRACKWAYS has been accepted for oral presentation in session titled “D11. Paleontology, Paleoecology/Taphonomy”.
Two of our members are in the USA (October 2017). First Igor gave scientific & popular talk at Smith College during geologists (almost) favorite part of day (lunchtime :-) ), than both participated at Mount St. Helens field trip (beautifull scenic snow and fog above) and finally Igor and Blanka presented the latest project developments at GSA Meeting (Washington State Convention Center). The abstracts of talks can be found at:
In meantime Bosiljka (our foreign project member) had a great moment in Seattle too as
Bosiljka Glumac (Smith College): Professor Bosiljka Glumac is an outstanding educator and researcher with boundless enthusiasm for all things geological, particularly carbonates. She is a leader in the sedimentology community and is dedicated to broad advancement of the geosciences.
Goldschmidt 2017, Paris, France
Talk given by head of project at Le Palais des Congrès de Paris entitled "A Cretaceous A-type granite from the Europe-Adria collisional zone: a marker of geodynamic changes".

XVI ICC, Granada, Spain
Summer time was devoted to conferences and submissions of abstracts to fall/winter meetings.
International Clay Conference in Granada was chance to present XRD based research on illite fractions.
A Few Good Men (and Girl ofc)
At the end of June and beginning of July we were occupied mentoring our young collaborators. First, Ivan Mišur defended his PhD thesis supported by our project and than Petra Schneider received Rector's Award by University of Zagreb.
In addition, Frane Marković, our project young researcher, defend his PhD thesis too.
We are very proud. Congrats!
