- 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.

Hi Bernhard, Interesting that leaf wax CSRA are within range of the bulk 14C ages. What do you find might explain the young age for the C31 alkane in one of the two samples? thanks, Sarah
Hi Bernhard, thanks for the nice presentation. At what depths were the soil samples collected? Did you make TOC concentration measurements for those samples? Variability in organic carbon concentration might indicate different amounts of vertical soil mixing and downward mobilization of modern plant material. I also find it strange that the nC31 age is so much younger than the nC29 age for the one sediment sample. Curious to hear your thoughts. Could it be contamination?
