- 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.

Dear Dr. Krot, Thank you so much for your presentation. If these 26Al-poor grains formed earlier than 26Al-rich ones, are they more likely to have larger isotopic anomalies like 50Ti & 48Ca (similar to PLACs)? Best regards
This is what one should expect by analogy with FUN CAIs and PLACs. However, if 26Al-poor grossite-rich CAIs from CH and CB chondrites condensed from the gas, they may be isotopically "normal". No large nucleosynthetic anomalies in Ca and Ti were found in CH CAIs by Kimura et al. (1993) and Weber et al. (1995). However, the uncertainties of NanoSIMS measurements reported are quite large. New measurements using large geometry SIMS instruments are required.
If 26Al-poor CAIs formed before 26Al-rich CAIs, was there some process that homogenized the local O isotope reservoirs by the time 26Al rich CAIs formed? How can oxygen isotope anomalies among the CO, H2O, and silicates be preserved through this process?
Why are so few absolute ages of CAIs known? Is it a limitation owing to low U and Pb concentrations in minerals present in CAIs or some other factor?
