Radiocarbon in Ecology and Earth System Science July 21-26, 2014 University of California, Irvine

This course will expose students and postdocs to the uses of radiocarbon in ecology and earth system science, especially in relation to ecosystem and global carbon cycling. There will be morning lectures on the theory of radiocarbon by various instructors, followed by hands-on laboratory activities with processing and analyzing samples using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry technology in the afternoon.

We seek participants with broad interests in ecology and earth system science 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.

There is a lab fee of $500. In addition, students will be responsible for their own transportation costs to and from UC Irvine, and for their own food and lodging cost at a nearby hotel. Hotel reservations will be handled by the course organizers.
