DCO Early Career Scientist Research Topic in Frontiers in Earth Sciences

The Research Topic, hosted by the Geochemistry section of Frontiers in Earth Sciences, will feature papers authored primarily by the participants of both DCO Early Career Scientist Workshops (2014 in Costa Rica and 2015 in the Azores) and the first DCO Summer School (2014 in Yellowstone National Park).

As a direct outcome of the 2015 DCO Early Career Scientist Workshop, which took place 31 August – 5 September at the University of the Azores, the open access journal Frontiers in Earth Sciences has accepted a proposal to host a special research topic titled “Early Career Scientist Contributions to the Deep Carbon Observatory.”

The Research Topic, hosted by the Geochemistry section of Frontiers in Earth Sciences, will feature papers authored primarily by the participants of both DCO Early Career Scientist Workshops (2014 in Costa Rica and 2015 in the Azores) and the first DCO Summer School (2014 in Yellowstone National Park). The topic will be guest edited by members of the organizing committee of the 2015 DCO Early Career Scientist workshop, Donato Giovannelli (Rutgers University, USA), Alysia Cox (Montana Tech of the University of Montana, USA), Cody Sheik (University of Minnesota Duluth, USA), and Katie Pratt (University of Rhode Island, USA).

Early career scientists from all four of DCO’s scientific communities (Deep Life, Deep Energy, Reservoirs and Fluxes, and Extreme Physics and Chemistry) are welcome to submit. The Research Topic will include both primary research papers and review articles. Any questions about submitting to the Research Topic should be addressed to Donato Giovannelli. The abstract submission deadline is 1 May 2016, and the final manuscript submission deadline is 15 September 2016.
