Erlangen 15-17 July 2014 - Short courses on Stable Isotopes, Carbonates and Paleobiology Database


IGCP 596 focuses on Mid-Paleozoic climate and biodiversity. The Mid-Paleozoic conforms to an interval of dynamic long-term climate change, which was accompanied by substantial variations in biodiversity.

Within the frame of a multidisciplinary workshop scheduled for 15-17.July 2014, we will provide hands-on-tutorials on the basics of three of the most relevant disciplines/methods for IGCP 596: Short Courses on Stable Isotope Geochemistry, Paleobiology Database and Microfacies analyses of carbonate rocks.
