Radiocarbon Short Course:
Radiocarbon in Ecology and Earth System Science
This international summer short course exposes participants to the uses of radiocarbon in the Earth system. Classroom activities provide an overview of radiocarbon in the current and past global carbon cycle as well as in the atmosphere, oceans and terrestrial ecosystems. Hands-on activities focus on creating a tracer-free lab environment and avoiding contamination in the field and lab, collecting samples in the field, choosing standards and blanks, processing and analyzing samples in the laboratory, and analyzing and interpreting radiocarbon data.
The course is a collaboration of the W.M. Keck Carbon Cycle Accelerator Mass Spectrometer facility, Department of Earth System Science, University of California, Irvine, USA, the Max-Planck-Institute for Biogeochemistry, Jena, Germany and the Center for Ecosystem Science and Society at Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, AZ, USA.
WHO SHOULD APPLY AND WHEN AND WHERE CAN I TAKE THE COURSE?
We seek graduate students, postdocs, researchers and technical staff who are planning on, or are currently, using radiocarbon techniques as part of their research, and wish to expand their understanding of this important and useful tool.
The next course will be from Aug 11-16, 2019 in Irvine, CA. Find out more and apply here: https://www.ess.uci.edu/radiocarbon
