Welcome to the Joint GEOTRACES/PAGES Workshop!

This workshop on the synthesis of geochemical proxies used in paleoceanography aims to establish the strength, limits and conditions of application of a given proxy. It will bring together expertise from GEOTRACES, PAGES, and the broader oceanographic community of observationalists and modellers that will exploit new data to provide a more rigorous calibration of proxies and interpretation of their records. We welcome discussion of any geochemical paleoceanographic proxy that can be improved using the measurements gathered by GEOTRACES, including trace elements, stable isotopes, and radioactive isotopes. All participants will choose 1 or 2 working group:


Working groups: Biological productivity / Oceanic circulation / Particle flux and sedimentation rate / Physical and/or biogeochemical modelling.

Financial support: It will be available for about 60 participants in the form of subsidies for airfare and ground transportation (capped depending on travel origin). Hotel rooms and meals will be provided by the organizers: 2 nights for participants from Europe and 4 nights for participants from overseas. Those who can cover their own travel expenses are encouraged to do so.

Limit of places at the workshop: about 70 (The registration is now closed).

SponsorsPAGES, GEOTRACES, SCOR, US-NSF, Aix-Marseille Université and John Cantle Scientific.

For French participants, this workshop is a part of the scientific animation of the actions CYBER and IMAGO of the programme CNRS-INSU-LEFE.
