These are scheduled events to help delegates test out the tools and platform we will be using for the Q&A and other events at the conference.
Our workshop program provides training and teaching in topics across geochemistry and related fields. We are currently liaising with the workshop organisers to ascertain if any workshops can become virtual. Any updates will be added to this page.

Can you detect hydrogen zoning in spinel grains using this method?
The short answer is that I think it is possible with meticulous signal analysis. Because H is certainly a trace element in spinel, one would need to process isotope/dimer images using our method. Then, the signal variance associated with multiple phases should be analyzed. If the signal variance associated with an area delineating a hypothetical spinel grain is significantly different than variance associated with a different phase (i.e. if the signal variation in a ratio image is heterogeneous), then the primary contribution of variance in one of those areas is something other than homogeneously distributed noise. In the case of H in spinel, I would interpret such a signal to indicate heterogeneity. Whether or not this heterogeneity is related to variation in H concentration or perhaps a structural aspect of the mineral grain would have to be determined independently. The 16OH image in our results section shows this effect nicely. -Danny
