Training Courses

BOSCORF runs two short training courses each year for PhD students and Early Career Researchers (ECRs). We also provide one-to-one training on specific instruments, in case your project requires it.

 

Non-Destructive Core Logging Course — ***Registration and Payment Site open***—

The non-destructive core logging course is intended for later-stage PhDs and ECRs with large volumes of non-destructive core logging data, with a particular focus on XRF data. This course will focus on the Avaatech and Itrax XRF Core Scanners, and how each system works. Additionally, an introduction will be given to Multi Sensor Core Logger datasets and sediment core radiography techniques. Tutorials will cover the data limitations, methods for quality controlling the data and a variety of tools to aid in the presentation and assessment of data. Students will also be introduced to software solutions designed for handling Itrax and other core logging and scanning data.

***This 2.5-day-long course will run from Tuesday morning the 29th of November to noon Thursday the 1th of December 2022.
