This is the formal registration for the EARTHTIME III workshop to be held at the Santa Fe Institute, Santa Fe, New Mexico on September 11-12th 2006. The purpose of the workshop will be to discuss proof of concept approaches for EARTHTIME. In particular we will seek key stratigraphic intervals that are richly endowed with fossils, dateable horizons, paleoclimate proxies, and cyclostratigraphic architecture and cover an important interval of earth history, which for example, may be characterized by significant changes in climate, carbon cycle, ocean and atmospheric chemistry, and biology. We hope to obtain some consensus on an approach, which can be followed up by single investigator or collaborative research proposals.
We will close registration on May 21rst and a final list of participants will be notified shortly thereafter.
