Virtual EPMA Workshop from Athens

Athens WorkshopThe Agricultural University of Athens has announced that it will be holding a five-day workshop from 5-9 April 2020 on the use of the electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA). There will be a particular emphasis on modern developments and geological applications.  The workshop is designed to educate undergraduates, graduates, and early career researchers in the theory and practice of EPMA.   The program consists of a set of online lectures covering topics ranging from conventional major element quantitative analysis to new developments in X-ray mapping, trace element analysis, measuring oxidation state and water content of hydrous glasses, and characterizing meteorites. A poster presentation from participants on the first day using Gather.Town will help participants get to know each other and highlight topics of interest for the rest of the course. Additionally, participants will have the option to acquire one to two days of hands-on data on the EPMA housed at our lab (Laboratory of Mineralogy and Geology; Agricultural University of Athens).
