Word clouds for two upcoming conference presentations
As I mentioned last week (as have others as well) it is abstract-writing and presentation-preparation season. Thankfully, the deadline for abstracts for the April 2010 AAPG conference in New Orleans has been extended a couple of weeks.
I’m presenting a talk at the GSA meeting in Portland next month about some work I did for my Ph.D. looking at the tectonic influence of sedimentation in the Magallanes Basin in southern Chile. A paper for this work is now in press for Basin Research and should be out early 2010. This talk is in in this session on Tuesday afternoon. Here is the wordle.net word cloud for that abstract:
I was also invited to present at the AGU meeting in December (which is in San Francisco as always). This is going to be a very cool session focused on discussing how external (allogenic) factors and internal factors (autogenic) interact to produce the sedimentary record. Some work I did looking at a Holocene deep-marine record compared with paleoclimate records is out in GSA Bulletin this month (I hope to finish a blog post about it very soon). The program is not finalized yet, so check back for details of when the session is. Here is the wordle.net word cloud for that abstract:
I’m looking forward to sharing this work with others and checking out what others are doing!
