Name Account: AMGC CYCLOSTRAT and  mention: ‘NAME CIP WORKSHOP’


The main goal of this project and the 3-day workshop (30/07/2018-01/08/2018 in Brussels) is to test reproducibility, and to some extent also standardization of results and uncertainties in the field of cyclostratigraphy. This requires the analysis of 3 artificial geological case studies by multiple individual researchers. The idea is that every researcher works independently.
All participants are free to determine their method of choice; however, a handful of criterions will be required as an outcome must be comparable. The different results will be compared and even more importantly, their pathways and resulting (in)accuracy will be discussed.
