Cyclostratigraphy Field Training School - FULL
In the context of the Cyclostratigraphy Intercomparison Project and the CycloNet project funded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) we offer graduate students the opportunity to join a one-week field training course in cyclostratigraphy. After a general theoretical introduction and field day (in the iconic area around Gubbio), students will be spread out over stratigraphically equivalent sections for logging and sampling during 2 days. They will measure their own proxy data on the outcrop or on samples taken (e.g. magnetic susceptibility or handheld XRF). In the second part, students will be instructed in the use of spectral analysis tools using their own acquired (and existing) data, and guided towards formulating working hypotheses that will be presented, discussed and compared to the existing literature. This workflow should introduce the students in a friendly and hands-on environment with most of the basic steps of carrying out a cyclostratigraphy study.

We are glad to have received a lot of applications. The summer school is full, and no new applications will be considered.
