Post-AGU 2013 CIDER Workshop

The CIDER-II Synthesis Center proposal to the NSF/FESD program has been funded for 5 years. We are continuing the summer programs, which are now held every year, alternating "deep" and "shallow" earth themes. We have been launching new activities, among which support for multi-disciplinary working groups on targeted topics, more sustained support for student research groups formed during the summer programs, a CIDER wiki and archival of materials assembled during the summer programs, as well as an annual "post-AGU" workshop. The first CIDER post-AGU workshop was held on Dec 10, 2011.

This one day workshop will serve as a kick-off for the CIDER 2014 Summer Program, and a retrospective on past programs, in particular, the most recent 2013 Summer Program

View the Workshop Agenda (draft).

Keynote Speakers:
- Rebecca Flowers, University of Colorado at Boulder "Kimberlites, thermochronology, and the Phanerozoic elevation change histories of cratons"
- Claude Jaupart, IPG Paris "Cooling of the Earth: Convection versus Vertical Segregation of Heat Producing Elements"
- Peter Olson,Johns Hopkins University "Effects of large-scale mantle convection on the geodynamo"
- Richard Walker, University of Maryland "In Search of Earth's Building Blocks and the Early History of Mantle Mixing"

The workshop is open to all - we encourage attendance by both former CIDER junior and senior participants, and those that haven't experienced CIDER yet but would like to find out more about it.

Please register/apply by November 12th, 2013. Limited funding is available for an extra hotel night at Berkeley following AGU. Registration is $10 and will be collected the day of the workshop

Workshop Organizers: Barbara Romanowicz and the CIDER ExCom.
