Meeting report on FORC Workshop published

EOS Earth & Space Science NewsEOS Earth & Space Science published a meeting report this week for the FORC Workshop held at the University of Minnesota in July, specifically highlighting how the first-order-reversal-curve (FORC) measurement technique is driving geoscientific research. Co-authored by Drs. Josh Feinberg and Leonard Spinu, chief workshop organizers, the report discusses the historical role of rock magnetism in the Earth sciences and, most interestingly, summarizes the three priorities for future research (as agreed upon by scientists participating in the workshop).

Attended by 55 researchers from 13 countries and sponsored by Lake Shore Cryotronics, the workshop included a symposium of speakers from a range of disciplines as well as hands-on training on the use of FORCs to characterize materials. Talks and training videos from the workshop can be viewed at the UMN meeting website.
