DISQOVER workshop 2018

DISQOVER Workshop September 2018

Dates

27-28. of September 2018 in Greifswald

Aims and scope

The R-package DISQOVER is a collection of quantitative methods in palynology. We started its development for three main reasons:

  1. to provide implementations that are easy to use and that can be automatised to handle large data sets
  2. to provide full flexibility in the underlying parameters, including pollen dispersal
  3. to stimulate critical discussion on the methods and parameters as a basis of future development.

The 2-day workshop will introduce four methods from the package: REVEALS, MARCO POLO,
EDA and ROPES. We introduce the principle of each approach, introduce and train application in R and discuss strength and weaknesses of the approaches.

Aims and scope

The workshop is free, but limited to 15 participants. To register, send an email to: martin.theuerkauf@uni-greifswald.de
