The ITCE training program for macrosystems biology

The US National Science Foundation supported a 6-year effort to develop integrated training experiences launching a generation of scientists prepared to tackle large-scale challenges associated with climatic, ecological, and biogeochemical perturbations affecting the USA and the globe. This program emphasized the use of stable isotopes in biogeochemical and ecological studies as a focal theme, but covered of a broad range of systems and techniques that are widely applicable to problems of spatial analysis, scaling, observation, and modeling of Earth system processes. The program was founded on the idea of multi-institution, collaborative, cohort-based training and education.

The period of formal NSF support for the ITCE program has ended, but many of the programs developed live on:

IsoMAP: WebGIS for Isotopes

IsoMAP is a dynamic, online workspace for spatial analysis, modeling and prediction of stable isotope ratio variation in the natural environment. The initial realease of the IsoMAP gateway is now live and supports precipitation isotope ratio modeling. Visit IsoMAP to learn more or to start making isoscapes today!
