I would like to call to your attention to a special (union) session at the fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union (San Francisco, CA Dec 15-19) highlighting the use of AMS in the earth sciences. The abstract deadline for this meeting is September 1 via standard mail and September 7 via web-based abstract submission. If you do submit an abstract to this session, please send me an email so that I can make sure that the abstract doesn't go unearmarked for this very exciting special session.

> The development of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) heralded a new era in the earth sciences and in part, has lead to the routine measurement of a suite of isotopes, e.g. 10Be,14C, 26Al, 36Cl, 99Tc, 129I. AMS has to some extent come of age, is now in its third decade, and is considered a necessary analysis tool. The measurement of natural and man-made nuclides has assisted in answering fundamental questions in the earth sciences. Some of these include, the distribution and variability of oceanic radiocarbon to study circulation and carbon cycling, measurement of specific components isolated from dissolved, sedimentary, or soil organic matter to characterize constituents controlling the carbon cycle, in situ cosmogenic nuclide production to date geomorphic surfaces, the study of groundwater flow and recharge, and detailed paleoclimate chronologies. We encourage papers presenting novel methodologies, new data sets, interpretations, and applications across the breadth of the earth
