I would suggest asking your advisor for blocks of time to hole up at the library, or wherever it is that you do your best work . Then do it.

The heading you choose must be in all capital letters and centered 1″ below the top of the page.

  6. Conversely, if your study is based on the rock record, people studying modem analogs. 
  7. People writing a synthesis paper on important new developments in your field.
  8. People applying earth science to societal problems (. earthquake hazard reduction, climate warming) who will try to understand your paper. 
  9. Potential reviewers of your manuscript or your thesis committee.
