The International Nannoplankton Association Summer School On Evolution And Taxonomy (INASSET 2018 - Cenozoic Nannofossils) will be held in Lyon, France, from 1-7 July 2018.

Venue

Laboratoire de Géologie de Lyon
Université Lyon 1

Description

- A five-day program of lectures and practical classes with a strong taxonomic focus including extensive microscope lab sessions.
- A grounding in Cenozoic nannofossil research will be provided through lectures on their crystallography, microscopy, image capture, and use of informatics resources such as the Nannotax website. We will then review the current nannofossil biozonal schemes, discuss their usefulness for biostratigraphical applications, and present case studies examining the geological evolution of these microfossils.
- A geological excursion on the sixth day will be held in the Ardèche Region.

This summer school is primarily intended for research students (Masters or PhD level), and early career-stage industrial biostratigraphers interested in nannofossil micropalaeontology, and its applications in biostratigraphy, and palaeoceanography.
