It is organized in response to recent technical advances and new
applications of Atom
Trap Trace Analysis (ATTA), an analytical method for
measuring the isotopes Kr-81, Kr-85, and Ar-39. The primary
aim of the workshop is to discuss the technical progress of ATTA
and thereby enabled innovative and timely applications of the
noble gas radionuclides to important scientific problems in earth
and environmental sciences, e.g. in the fields of groundwater
hydrology, glaciology, oceanography, and paleoclimatology.
The program of TANGR2015 starts with an evening reception on Thursday, March 26, followed by a scientific program on Friday and Saturday, and ends with a Heidelberg visit on Sunday, March 29.
Independent of the workshop, but in parts with a related content, the Spring Meeting of the German Physical Society 2015 takes place in Heidelberg from March 23-27 in Heidelberg. In particular, on Thursday, March 26, there will be a plenary lecture about ATTA given by Zheng-Tian Lu, followed by a symposium on "Applied Noble Gas Physics", which will also include presentations related to ATTA.
