Dear Sir or Madam

Thank you for your email. What time is this in British Summer Time?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully

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 athttp://workspace.earthcube.org/c4p/content/c4p-webinars.

We hope you can join us,
