Summer School on Speleothem Science

Dates: From 28 Jul, 2013 till 03 Aug, 2013
Registration URL: Click to open
Registration deadline: 01 Apr, 2013


The “Summer School on Speleothem Science” will be held on 28 July - 3 August 2013 in Heidelberg, Germany, and is aimed at an international audience. PhD students, young scientists and undergraduates that are active, or otherwise interested in this field of research, are kindly invited to join.

The “Summer School on Speleothem Science” – S4 – is organised by a group of 20 PhD students specialized in speleothem research. As our field of study is rapidly advancing, it seemed important to hold a summer school on speleothem science where students and high-profile senior researchers can share their experience and meet the expressed needs of the young scientists in this research field. This will provide a comprehensive overview of the most current and innovative techniques used, or being developed.

Lectures will be combined with discussions and seminars on a range of relevant speleothem related topics, providing a lively and comprehensive summer school. Practical exercises and experiments will also be held.

Some fields that will be covered are:

  • O and C isotope proxies
  • Geochemistry/Monitoring/Trace-Elements/Proxies
  • Techniques AMS/ICPMS/SIMS/Laser
  • Statistics (Age models and Time series analysis)
  • Frontiers of Paleoclimate Research
  • Fieldtrip to the Herbstlabyrinth cave system

Poster sessions will also be held during this week and young scientists will be able to present their work, discuss and troubleshoot the challenges of their own research.

À poster of the S4 (5.6 Mb) can be downloaded using this link. We would greatly appreciate if you could find the time to forward it to researchers and students you think would be interested and/or place it on a relevant blackboard at your institution for interested students to find it there.

Please visit our website for further information about the registration, as well as the schedule of the "Summer School on Speleothem Science". 

In case any questions arise, please contact us!

Best regards,

Laia Comas Bru
