> International Workshop on the Isotope Effects in Evaporation: Revisiting
> the Craig-Gordon Model Four Decades after its Formulation
> to be held on 3-5 May 2006 at
> Istituto di Geoscienze e Georisorse
> Area della Ricerca del CNR
> Via G. Moruzzi, 1 I-56124 Pisa, Italy
> The aim of the Workshop is to re-examine the current knowledge for the
> prediction and estimation of the isotope fractionations occurring during
> phase changes of water in natural environments and laboratory experiments,
> with special emphasis on the Craig-Gordon evaporation model.
> The Workshop will include all topics related to the isotopic effects in
> water evaporation and ice sublimation, vapour transport in the atmosphere,
> vapour condensation, evapo-transpiration from plants and soils, as well as
> experimental studies on exchange and isotope fractionations between ice,
> liquid water and vapour, isotopic balance of lakes, isotopic records
> associated with the evaporation-condensation cycle of water and their
> relationships with the environmental conditions, etc. Also elements other
> than hydrogen and oxygen, will be considered if they produce isotopic
> effects related to evaporation or other phase changes of water.
> The Workshop will include selected oral presentations and poster
> presentations, whose extended abstracts should be submitted by January 31,
> 2006. The selection will be made by the scientific committee of the
> Workshop. A web site will be established soon, where detailed information
> on the meeting will be given.
> The meeting is co-sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency,
> Vienna.
> All those who are willing, or consider, to attend the workshop, are kindly
> requested to express their interest to Roberto Gonfiantini, Istituto di
> Geoscienze e Georisorse del CNR (E-mail
> <mailto:[log in to unmask]>[log in to unmask], phone

> The Craig-Gordon evaporation model was formulated four decades ago and has
> been, and still is, widely applied in isotope hydrology and geochemistry.
> The model started to be elaborated by Prof. Harmon Craig during his
> 1963-64
> sabbatical leave at the Laboratory for Nuclear Geology of the University
> of
> Pisa, directed by Prof. Ezio Tongiorgi. The model was included in a long
> paper on stable isotope variations in the ocean and the marine atmosphere,
> co-authored by Louis I. Gordon. The paper was presented at the Workshop on
> Stable Isotopes in Oceanographic Studies and Paleotemperatures held in
> Spoleto, Italy, in July 1965, and published in the proceedings of the
> meeting (Editor: E. Tongiorgi). In spite of the limited circulation of
> these proceedings, the Craig-Gordon paper became rapidly a classic which
> has made the history of isotope geochemistry,
> Thus, the Workshop will also provide the opportunity to commemorate Harmon
> Craig as prominent scientist whose research and ideas greatly contributed
> to the advancement of the stable isotope geochemistry of light elements.
> Together with him, we would like to remind the work of Ezio Tongiorgi, as
> founder and promoter of isotope geology in Italy.
