Goethe-Universität Frankfurt

The 2020 short couse unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the situation with SARS-CoV-2. The new date is 9 – 12 March 2021

FIERCE in cooperation with SPP-1833 Building a Habitable Earth runs a short course on the analysis of stable and radiogenic isotopes (e.g., Li, B, Sr, Mo, Nd, Hf, W, U-Pb, U-Th) as well as trace elements in rocks and minerals by laser ablation and solution-based ICP-MS and SIMS. Presentations comprise technical aspects of instrumentation, methods, and a wide range of applications with an emphasis on geochronology, processes on the early Earth and in the solar system, composition and evolution of oceans and the continental crust.

Requirements: The course is designed for PhD students/post-docs with existing basic knowledge on isotope geology and is given as individual lectures by experts in the field. Interested MSc students are, however, also welcome.

Speakers: Richard Albert, Robert Anczkiewicz, Sonja Aulbach, Tim Elliott, David Evans, Jan Fietzke, Tina Van de Flierdt, Axel Gerdes, Simone Kasemann, Horst Marschall, Leo Millonig, Wolfgang Müller, Carsten Münker, Axel Schmitt, Hans-Michael Seitz

The previous programme for the cancelled short course in 2020 is available online. We very much hope to repeat this programmes without many changes, however we cannot guarantee this.

Costs: The course fee will be 70 € for students and early career scientists and 300 € for non-academic and industrial attendees. The fee covers refreshment and finger food during the course and dinner on Wednesday evening.

Registration: Online registration is closed. It might re-open in December 2020, if we have spaces available. Presently all participants who registered for 2020 have their spaces reserved.

Course venue: Geozentrum at Goethe-Universität Frankfurt, Institut für Geowissenschaften, Riedberg Campus, Altenhöferallee 1, 60438 Frankfurt am Main, Germany
