GSA  2014 Short Course: Deep Carbon through Deep Time

Carbon plays unparalleled roles in Earth. It is the element of life, providing the chemical backbone for all essential biomolecules. Carbon-based fuels supply most of society’s energy, while carbon-bearing molecules in the atmosphere play major roles in Earth’s variable and uncertain climate. Yet in spite of carbon’s importance, many aspects of the physical, chemical, and biological behavior of Earth’s subsurface carbon-bearing systems—particularly the evolution of those systems through deep time—remain unresolved. The groundbreaking GSA Workshop on “Deep Carbon Through Deep Time” will bring together for the first time diverse experts from geology and biology to explore this topic. In addition to 7 overview lectures by leading educators, ample time will be devoted to questions and informal interactions. Read more...

 

DCO Early Career Scientists at AGU 2014

At the first DCO Early Career Scientist Workshop in Costa Rica, February 2014, the attendees set a goal to continue building and shaping a network of early career deep carbon scientists, and to strive to meet the needs of this network within the broader DCO community. As part of meeting this goal, several workshop participants crafted session proposals for the 2014 AGU Fall Meeting to cover myriad aspects of the DCO program. All three proposals were accepted. We encourage all DCO scientists to submit their abstracts. Read more...
