HiRes2017 - Register by May 1

Ian Orland
Dear Colleagues,

With apologies for cross posting. Feel free to forward this message to whoever may be interested.

This is the 2nd announcement for HiRes2017, a NSF-sponsored* workshop to explore new developments of high-resolution in situ studies for proxies of paleoclimate.  

The meeting will be June 18-21, 2017, in Madison, WI.  

Registration is free, with a deadline of May 1. Please follow this URL to register via Google Form: 

More details are available on the workshop website, including codes for accommodation discounts (limited availability!) and keynote talk titles:

Workshop synopsis: SIMS and laser techniques provide a new level of climate resolution through analysis of isotope ratio and trace element compositions at micron-scale. In situ analysis permits correlation of imaging with geochemistry and selection of features that could not otherwise be interrogated. These recent advances yield improved temporal resolution and promise an important new level of understanding for many paleoclimate proxies. Sub-annual to sub-daily resolution is possible for many proxies facilitating studies of seasonality or animal growth and migration. The workshop will be conducted in parallel with tutorial demonstrations of the IMS 1280 Ion Microprobe in the WiscSIMS Lab. The goals of the meeting are to explore new capabilities and new applications of in situ analysis to paleoclimate and to acquaint participants with SIMS techniques.
