    Hi all,

    I'll be applying for Graduate school (PhD) at the end of this year.

    I have been told that it is a good time to start scoping out the best people in the field that I am interested in, no matter where they are from. Is there an 'easy' way to go about doing this? How does one do this?

    If it is of any importance to the thread, my degrees will be in Mathematics and Environmental science. I am interested in becoming a planetary geologist.

    Thank you.

    Who told you this, and why didn't they also tell you how to go about doing this?
