Radiocarbon dating reservoir effects and calibration dating critic
• Kellie Jones (Northparkes Mines), who discussed the application of the TIMA to mining and mineral processing at the Northparkes Cu-Au operation.
• Marek Dosbaba (Tescan Orsay Holding), who reviewed the workflow of the TIMA software.
Even still they had to cherry pick that data to get at the warmest year ever and it is only the warmest by only two-100ths of a degree within a dataset that has a variability of a half of a degree.
The day started with a tour of the John de Laeter Centre (Jd LC) facilities incorporating the Tescan integrated mineral analyser (TIMA; ), which was the key instrument of relevance to the workshop.
Dr Mark Aylmore, recently appointed to take on the role of Applied Mineralogist in the Jd LC, chaired the workshop that included presentations from: • Dr Kamran Khajehpour (AXT), who gave an overview of automated mineralogy and supported by Esben Kjaer (Struers) who gave a brief overview on sample preparation techniques.
• Prof Brent Mc Innes (Curtin Jd LC), who demonstrated the applications of the TIMA to Archeology, Petrology, Geochemical Mapping, and the Characterisation of Mineral & Petroleum Systems.
The Great lakes had record ice Lake Superior only had 3 ice free months in 2014.
You’d think that in the hottest year ever that ice would be melting like Al Gore said. Record Snow 2014 saw record snowfall in many areas, remember when they said that global warming would cause snow to disappear and children won’t know what snow is. Record Cold In 2014 we saw all kinds of cold records remember the Polar Vortex?
