Hello all,

I would like to draw your attention to some ICE-D 'office hours' that I
(Joe Tulenko) will be hosting during the Geological Society of America
conference next month in Pittsburgh.

The ICE-D database project (www.ice-d.org) is an effort to organize
cosmogenic-nuclide exposure-age data that are useful for, among other
things, reconstructing past glacier and ice sheet change, fault-zone
activity, landscape evolution, etc. It uses a “transparent-middle-layer”
design that solves a number of problems associated with synoptic analysis
of geochronology data by enforcing internally consistent calculation of
geologic ages across a large data set. At present, the database is fairly
complete for Antarctica (www.ice-d.org/antarctica), Greenland (
www.ice-d.org/greenland) and alpine glaciers in many parts of the world (
www.ice-d.org/alpine), but data is continually being published and there is
room for improvement of these and other sub-databases.

The goal of these office hours is to offer a time and place for ICE-D
support for current users, but we also encourage anyone interested in the
ICE-D project to stop by with questions and ideas about ICE-D, stop by for
friendly chat, and even get set up and connected with ICE-D if you are
interested and have not yet done so. I will also have some example
applications that use ICE-D if folks want to learn a little more about what
users can do with ICE-D.

I will be posted up in the lobby of the *Renaissance Pittsburgh Hotel* (107
6TH STREET, PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA, USA, 15222) on *Monday Oct. 16th
2:00-6:00pm*. The Hotel is approx. 2 blocks west of the David L. Lawrence
Convention Center and the lobby entrance is on 6th Street. Please stop by!

all the best,
Joe
