C4P Webinar on dbSEABED and Automating Geochronology Workflow

Advances And Emergent Needs in Paleogeoscience Cyberinfrastructure

*Wednesday*, September 10, 4-5pm Eastern Time.

The topics for the next C4P Webinar are Geologic Time and Paleocoordinate
methods in the Global Seafloor Geology Database (dbSEABED)​  (Chris
Jenkins, University of Colorado) and Automating Geochronology Workflow from
Raw Data to Repository: The Power of Collaborative Software Engineering (Jim
Bowring, College of Charleston).

This week’s webinar is on a WEDNESDAY due to scheduling of the speakers.

Geologic Time and Paleocoordinate methods in the Global Seafloor Geology
Database (dbSEABED)  (Chris Jenkins, University of Colorado)

Many cored/drilled/dredged/outcropping records in the global seafloor
geology database dbSEABED hold geologic time information. This can be
biostratigraphic (fossil), chronostratigraphic (stages, etc), or by
absolute age dates. For computational data analysis of the data the word
and numeric dates are expressed as a range+-uncertainty. Then time-slicing
is possible and paleocoordinates (through Gplates) can be computed. This
webinar will show some of the methods and results.

Automating Geochronology Workflow from Raw Data to Repository: The Power of
Collaborative Software Engineering​ (Jim Bowring, College of Charleston)

The Cyber Infrastructure Research and Development Lab for the Earth
Sciences (www.CIRDLES.org) develops software tools with and for
geochronologists to support their scientific workflows from sample to
archive. These tools provide statistical filtering, interactive
visualizations, interactive uncertainty propagation, sensitivity testing,
publication-quality artifacts, and standardized data formats for archiving,
retrieval, and comparison of results.  Geochron.org is the archive and
provides additional services for viewing sample ages.  Our
first-of-its-kind collaboration between software engineers and
geochronologists developing high-precision records of earth history using
the radioactive decay of uranium to lead is serving as an exemplar for
other geochronologists and earth scientists.



The intended audience for this webinar is professional paleogeoscientists
and cyber/computer scientists.  All webinars will be recorded and publicly
archived at http://workspace.earthcube.org/c4p/content/c4p-webinars.

We hope you can join us,
