- 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 Haibo - nice to e-meet you and excited to see some U-Th-Ra data being presented. I have some questions about your U-series data. You have quite substantial Ra excesses in the whole rock data, but I noticed your WR data point on your zircon plots is on the equiline for U-Th. Do you have any idea why that might be? We saw the same thing in our dataset from Montserrat (U-Th in equilibrium but Ra excesses present). Also, I get that the blue model line on your Ra/Th vs Th/U plot is the maximum age based on the half life of Ra but I didn't quite get where the red model line was from. Thanks! Lucy
Thanks Lucy! Good questions. The whole rocks have 4 to 11% 230Th excesses. Because of the large range with zircon U-Th data and relatively small 230Th excesses, the whole rocks seem to plot on the equiline. The red line assumes initial (226Ra/230Th) ratio of 3.5. Hope that I answered your questions.
