    ICDP - EarthRates Workshop and Fieldtrip: CPCP2 / EMCT

    Application deadline March 15

St. George, Utah, USA: May 11 - May 16, 2019 (Symposium: May 11-14, Fieldtrip: May, 15-16)

An ICDP - EarthRates international workshop is being convened to develop a science plan and chart specific proposals for the Colorado Plateau Coring Project 2 (CPCP 2) and Early Mesozoic, low- to high-latitude Coring Transect (EMCT). The overarching goal of CPCP 2 / EMCT is to obtain a robust globally - exportable geochronology for the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic (237-174 Ma) that links together zircon U-Pb ages, paleomagnetic polarity, atmospheric gas concentrations, climate gradients, biotic change, and all major parameters of the orbital pacing of climate (precession, eccentricity, obliquity, inclination), that will be invaluable to the general scientific community.
