Trace element and isotope proxies in paleoceanography: A synthesis workshopExternal

Activity Overview

Type: Workshop
Start Date: December 3, 2018
End Date: December 5, 2018
Venue: Aix-Marseille, France

The joint GEOTRACES/PAGES workshop on the synthesis of geochemical proxies used in paleoceanography aims to establish the strength, limits and conditions of application of a given proxy. There is a vital need for a synthesis of geochemical proxies used in paleoceanography to improve interpretation of commonly used proxies. This synthesis is timely in view of the wealth of new data coming from GEOTRACES and contemporary programs. The workshop will bring together expertise from GEOTRACES, PAGES, and the broader oceanographic community of observationalists and modellers that will exploit new data to provide a more rigorous calibration of proxies and interpretation of their records.

More information on this event will follow in early 2018.
