GeoChronR Training Workshop

August 17, 2016 - August 19, 2016

The GeoChronR project was funded by NSF-Geoinformatics to facilitate broad adoption of state-of-the-art geochronologic uncertainty quantification. Its leaders (N. McKay, NAU; J. Emile-Geay, USC) will be hosting a training workshop on the analysis, visualization and integration of time-uncertain data in the paleogeosciences on the campus of Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, AZ on August 17-19, 2016. This workshop is intended for graduate students and early-career scientists working with geoscientific timeseries with uncertainties in the time domain.GeoChronR_Announcement

Topics include:

  • Interacting with the Linked Paleo Data format, including importing and exporting datasets
    Using available algorithms, including Bacon, BAM, BChron, and Clam to estimate age uncertainty
  • Propagating age uncertainty through multiple stages of analysis, including correlation, regression, ordination, and spectral methods
  • Effectively visualizing results and uncertainties
  • Interpreting, discussing and disseminating results to encourage transparent and reproducible science.

Space is limited to fifteen attendees, with preference given to graduate students and early career scientists. Experience with scientific programming, especially R, will be helpful, but not required, and the workshop and tools are designed for non-expert users. Travel support is available for accepted applicants. Applications are due on or before June 12th. Please apply here.
