Registration deadline: 8 April 2011

This course will expose students and postdocs to the uses of radiocarbon in ecology and earth system science, especially in relation to ecosystem and global carbon cycling. The course design is modeled after the stable isotope class at the University of Utah. There will be morning lectures on the theory of radiocarbon by various instructors, followed by laboratory experience with processing and analyzing samples using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry technology in the afternoon.

Organizers seek participants with broad interests in ecology and earth system science who are planning on, or are currently, using radiocarbon techniques as part of their research, and wish to expand their understanding of this important and useful tool.

Download the application form for the class and email the completed application to Ted Schuur (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

Students will be responsible for their own transportation costs to and from UCI, and for their own food and lodging costs in on-campus shared apartments. Housing reservations will be handled by the course organizers. In addition, there is a lab fee of $500.
