Tuesday, June 26, 2012, 12:30 - 13:30h, Palais de Congres, Montreal, Room 520C. EarthCube is a bold new initiative of the US National Science Foundation to create over the next decade an integrated data and knowledge system to advance our understanding and prediction of the Earth system from the sun to the center of the Earth. To achieve its full potential, EarthCube must be connected to and guided by the geoscience community that is actively engaged in research. This Town Hall is convened to inform the geochemistry community about the potential, goals, and process of the EarthCube initiative and engage researchers in its development.

When archaeologists tried out a new technique to determine the age of Spain's most famous Paleolithic cave paintings, they were surprised to discover that the paintings were thousands of years older than previously thought — so old that it's conceivable they were painted by Neanderthals. The technique just might change the way we think about the paintings, and the way we think about our long-extinct, long-maligned Neanderthal cousins as well. More
