3rd Workshop and Fieldtrip of IGCP 655 Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event:
Impact on marine carbon cycle and ecosystems.
September 2nd – 5th, 2019, Erlangen (Germany)

The IGCP project 655 – Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event: Impact on marine carbon cycle and ecosystems (International Geoscience Program supported by the IUGS and UNESCO) and the Friedrich-Alexander Universität are pleased to announce the 3rd International Workshop on the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (3rd IW-TOAE).

This workshop is open to members of the IGCP 655 and all other researchers interested in the study of major biological and environmental crisis associated with the Pliensbachian–Toarcian boundary and the TOAE. The program is also of interest to academics and industry participants dealing with organic geochemistry. According to the tradition of IGCP projects, this workshop welcomes the active participation of early career researchers and students, and a pre-meeting training course is offered. A two-day field trip covering the main Pliensbachian-Toarcian outcrops of Buttenheim, Teufelsgraben and Dotterhausen is also proposed.

The main topic will be “Impact on marine organisms and ecosystems”. This workshop is open to all other researchers focused on the study of the palaeobiological and palaeoenvironmental perturbations associated with the Pliensbachian–Toarcian boundary and the T-OAE. This workshop is intended to promote an active participation of early career researchers and students. For that reason, a pre-conference training course is offered focusing on quantitative analysis of biological patterns. As a university city, Erlangen offers an academic and welcoming atmosphere right in the heart of the most iconic Jurassic outcrops, which will be visited during the two-day post-conference fieldtrip.

More information can be found on the website and in the first circular.
