The SPATIAL (Spatio-temporal Isotope Analytics Lab) Short Course represents a bridge between theory and measurement, introduced in ITCE Course 1, and regional-to-continental scale research. It builds on the skills and knowledge base developed in Course 1 or equivalent stable isotope biogeochemistry coursework to introduce current research themes in large-scale ecology and environmental Earth science, theoretical and technical aspects of assembling and working with large, spatially distributed datasets, and analytical and computational tools available to support such work. The course emphasizes stable isotopes as a research tool, and their unique capacity to address many ecological problems, but also stresses the integration of isotopes with other data types and methods within a geospatial framework.

Revision as of 17:15, 6 March 2014

  • Geobiology course [1]

Now entering it’s 11 year, the International GeoBiology Course is an intense, multidisciplinary summer course exploring the coevolution of the Earth and it's biosphere, with an emphasis on how microbial processes affect the environment and leave imprints on the rock record. Participants get hands-on experience in cutting-edge geobiological techniques including molecular biology, bioinformatics, geochemistry, petrology and sedimentology, and work in research groups to solve relevant questions.

  • Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry and Ecology summer course [2]

Iso-Camp is a multi-instructor lecture (Biol 7473) and lab (Biol 7475) short course offered to graduate students and postdoctoral investigators interested in learning more about the application of stable isotopes to environmental and ecological studies. About 40 students attend each June.

  • Isotopes in Spatial Ecology and Biogeochemistry (SPATIAL Short Course) [3]

The SPATIAL (Spatio-temporal Isotope Analytics Lab) Short Course represents a bridge between theory and measurement, introduced in ITCE Course 1, and regional-to-continental scale research. It builds on the skills and knowledge base developed in Course 1 or equivalent stable isotope biogeochemistry coursework to introduce current research themes in large-scale ecology and environmental Earth science, theoretical and technical aspects of assembling and working with large, spatially distributed datasets, and analytical and computational tools available to support such work. The course emphasizes stable isotopes as a research tool, and their unique capacity to address many ecological problems, but also stresses the integration of isotopes with other data types and methods within a geospatial framework.

Led by Nathaniel and Peggy Ostrom (even years). A 2 unit course focused on Principles of stable isotope chemistry applied to biogeochemical problems: climate change, ecology, contaminants, oceanography, limnology, and paleobiology.

Course features: • Cooperative learning through lecture & laboratory instruction • Hands-on experience • Discussion of experimental design, sample handling, field techniques • Exposure to rapidly developing techniques, e.g.: • Automated analysis of O and H isotope values on organic matter • Automated measurement of trace gases (e.g., N2O and CH4) • Multi-element (H, C, N, S, O) isotope systematics on bulk organics • Multi-element (H, C, N) molecular-level isotope systematics • Exposure to new state-of-the art instrumentation

  • Microbial Diversity

Directors: Jared R. Leadbetter and Dianne K. Newman An intensive 6.5 week course for graduate students, postdoctoral scholars and established investigators who aim to learn how to cultivate and genetically manipulate metabolically and phylogenetically diverse microorganisms. Students will also be exposed to state-of-the-art imaging and bioinformatic techniques used to study not-yet-cultivated microbes. Guest lecturers from a wide array of microbiology subfields will contribute to enhancing the intellectual richness of the course.

  • Arctic Climate Change: EuRuCAS Land Hydrology and Cryosphere of the Arctic and Northern Eurasia in the changing climate [4]

The goal of the EuRuCAS Summer School is to involve young generation of researchers into EU‐Russia scientific cooperation in the field of Arctic and Sub-Arctic environmental and climate science. Participants will receive world-class instruction and experience in Land Hydrology, Cryosphere and Climate of the Arctic and Northern Eurasia and will have opportunity to share their own scientific results. The program will include lectures by leading scientists in each of the below listed topics and student’s session.
