XRF Core Scanning 2017

20.03 - 24.03.2017  
Taipei, Taiwan

The international conference "XRF Core Scanning 2017" will be held at the National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan, from 20-24 March 2017.


The conference will be held at the National Taiwan University from 20-22 March. A field trip takes place from 22-24 March.


XRF core-scanners have made an important contribution to the non-destructive and high-resolution investigation of sediment cores from lakes and marine environments over the last 25 years, especially for the investigation of finely laminated or varved sediments, where XRF core-scanning provided a major step forward. This technique allows for the investigation of sediment records on subannual timescales, which was unthinkable in the past.

Now it is considered timely to bring together international specialists using high-resolution XRF core-scanners in all fields of science to present new research, to stimulate new collaborations and discussions and to propose new technological developments.


Abstract submissions close 31 December 2016.
