August 12-18, 2012: PalEON Summer Course Underway

PalEON’s summer course, “Assimilating long-term data into ecosystem models,” is in full swing in the northwoods of Michigan and Wisconsin. Sixteen graduate students and post-docs arrived from around the globe to learn the tools and methodology advanced by the PalEON Project. The students collected and analyzed tree cores in an old growth forest, dissected a lake sediment freeze core, and really dug into modules on Bayesian data analysis, data assimilation, and ecosystem modeling. We’re looking forward to seeing how they apply these tools in their independent projects!
