The ITCE program offers a sequence of two, 2-week, summer short courses to graduate students, postdocs, and interested faculty and researchers. Read More
Course 1, Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry and Ecology (aka Iso-Camp), emphasizes fundamental environmental and biological theory underlying isotope fractionation processes and a broad spectrum of ecological and environmental applications.
Course 2, Isotopes in Spatial Ecology and Biogeochemistry (aka the SPATIAL Short Course), extends on the fundamentals covered in course 1 to develop theory and techniques for applying isotope and biogeochemical tracer data to spatial problems at a range of scales.
Support from the National Science Foundation allows the ITCE program to provide scholarship support for a limited number of student participants in each course. Scholarships will be awarded competitively and are available only to applicants who are graduate students. Scholarship applications can be submitted as part of the course application process, and require an additional short essay and second letter of support.
Student participants will be eligible for project-supported, post-course exchange visits to conduct research in residence at with one or more ITCE instructors.
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!
