- Sponsor Seminars
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.

[Thank you for your interesting presentation. We want to prioritize questions from the audience over the questions from the conveners, but if there is time and no other questions, please feel free to address these questions.] 1) Prior to the ETM3, there is what looks like an important negative 187Os/188Os excursion. What do you think could have happened there? A large increase in mantle input? Would that be supported by other evidence or isotopes? 2) One or two of the 187Os/188Os measurements between the ETM3 and I1 events are not very distinguishable from the values during ETM3, I1 and ETM2, but there does not appear to be a thermal maximum there, at least as predicted by d13C and d18O. Is that significant?
Thank you for your questions. Both of your questions are related to the interval between the I1 event and ETM3. We do not have a good idea about the fluctuation at the interval now (Original marine value? Locally input?), and we are planning to conduct additional observations after our lab opens. We hope it will reveal a reason of this fluctuation.
This is a question from Pam Vervoort, University of California, Riverside. The residence time of Osmium is about 30-50 kyr if I'm correct. Both the onset and recovery phase of most hyperthermals occur on the same timescales. Can you elaborate a bit more on how you think this would impact the record?
Thank you for posting your question. Os residence time (~10 kyrs) is longer than oceanic circulation (~1000 years), so it is enough to detect the global average of marine Os isotope and the onset and recovery phase of hyperthermals (e.g. PETM in previous researches).
