- 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 the presentation. I am wondering how the amount of sulfide present varies down core? Do you see a decrease in S abundance in the heavier S intervals? If you don't how do you explain that in the context of needing to invoke relatively S concentration in the ocean to get that degree rayleigh fractionation?
Daniel, we did not find any relationship between S-isotope ratios and the concentrations of sulfide minerals in our collected samples. We interpreted the departure from the general stratigraphic trend to much higher S-isotope ratios within a specific interval by Raleigh Fractionation of the sea-water within the basin in a closed system regardless of the quantity of sulfur therein.
