Meeting Description

The goal of this workshop is for the community to design modern paleo, rock and geomagnetic databases. Choices need to be made on the kind of data archived and how to update and integrate existing databases and make them easy to interrogate electronically. Coordination with other information technology initiatives in the Earth sciences is also necessary to facilitate interdisciplinary research. The first PMAG workshop will be held in La Jolla, CA, USA from March 24-26, 2002 to promote such a discussion and to aid in the establishment of a generic and global PMAG database.
