Logistics

Pre-workshop: 4-5 January 2020
Main workshop: 6-12 January 2020

Venue

International Center for Tropical Highlands Ecosystems Research (ICTHER)

Description

SAPEC-2020 is the first official gathering of the Southeast Asian Paleo Environments Consortium, as well as a workshop open to all aspiring early-career scientists in paleoclimate fields.

Along with two full days of fieldwork in the established Bidoup Nui Ba National Park (BDNP) study sites, Dr. Brendan Buckley (Columbia University) will lead three days of intensive methodology instruction and discussion, ranging from generating data to producing complex models for climate reconstruction, and all the steps in between.

For this purpose, samples and data already generated from published studies in the region will be used, which are the result of a long history of NSF funding.

Program

Pre-workshop 4-5 January

Pre-workshop activities include preparing samples and informal discussions.

Main program 6-12 January

Day 1: Orientation & Introduction
Days 2 and 3: Sampling
Days 4: Sample processing classes
Days 5 and 6: Data analysis & climate reconstruction classes
Day 7: Group presentation & closing

Besides instructional presentations, participants will be given ample opportunities to practice the skills hands-on. They will apply the newly learned skills directly to a group project, which will be presented on the last day.

During most evenings, participants will share their own research in conference-style (12 minutes for presentation and 3 minutes Q&A).
