Integrated Chemical Imaging Workshop
August 12 - 13, 2024

Integrated Chemical Imaging workshop

August 12-13, 2024 | Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory and online 

Register to attend in person or online.

Hosted by EMSL and SLAC

Spatially resolved measurements, crucial for understanding ecosystem responses to perturbations, are limited by insufficient integration across imaging modalities and manual data processing. To explain larger-scale phenomena using 2-D and 3-D chemical and morphological imaging, a visionary plan is needed to deeply understand microscale processes and inform modeling across scales.

This workshop focuses on how to integrate microstructural and microscale chemical information using multiple techniques, and implementing such data in Earth system model development. The session will discuss challenges related to data extraction, classification, and operability, with the aim of correlating and scaling data for database and modeling applications.

In-person attendance is limited to to 20 people. The deadline to register to attend in-person is June 28. Register to attend at EMSL.

Virtual attendance is also available. Register to attend online.
