List Servers

A listserver consists of an automated mailing list. Any message sent to the list is automatically passed on to all susbscribers on the list. Typical messages include announcements about conferences, field trips, job vacancies, new papers, new books, requests for assistance in locating references, people and resources, discussion of research ideas, general theory, etc., exchange of news, and anything that the list members think appropriate. (CANQUA 1998).

Quaternary research: For all interested in research in the Quaternary sciences, particularly, but not exclusively, in Canada, a Quaternary Listserver has been established through the initiative of the Canadian Quaternary Association (especially Dana Naldret and Dave Liverman, with assistance from the Memorial University of Newfoundland, and the Newfoundland Department of Mines and Energy).

To subscribe, send the following message to:

Leave the subject field blank and type in the text field:

SUBSCRIBE QUATERNARY firstname lastname

You should receive acknowledgement of your subscription.

To unsubscribe, do the same except type:

unsubscribe name of listserve

Note that some mailers allow you to append a signature line to the end of your message. Turn off this feature when sending commands (like sub and unsub) to Listproc. Otherwise you may receive an error message. The subscribe or unsubscribe command will work, but you will receive the error message, which you can discard.

Follow the same procedure for these other specialist list servers, as indicated

Paleolimnology: to facilitate the exchange of information across disciplinary lines. The PALEOLIM listservice will encourage open discussion on all aspects of paleolimnology, including:

-radioisotopic dating methods, models, and applications
-historic changes in nutrient loading, eutrophication, and biogeochemical cycles
-stable isotope and trace metal studies in paleolimnology
-climatic reconstruction, paleohydrology, salinity, and lake-level changes
-human influence on erosion in watersheds and sedimentation rates
-lake acidification studies
-biological indicators (e.g. spores, pollen, chrysophytes, diatoms, microinvertebrates, pigments, spicules, macrophyte remains, biogenic silica) of past environmental conditions
-dating sediment cores by amino-acid racemization
-paleolimnology and historic wetland delineation
-utility of paleolimnological studies to lake and watershed management programs.

Micropaleontology: for the discussion of problems of micropaleontology. This subdiscipline of paleontology deals mostly with fossil protists -- foraminifera, radiolaria, tintinnids, diatoms, dinoflagellates, coccolithophores, acritarchs, etc. that have excellent fossil records extending back in some cases 1.4 billion years ago.
SUBSCRIBE MICROPALEO firstname lastname

Stable isotope geochemistry: to promote the exchange of news and information between anyone with an interest in stable isotope geochemistry. The list is intended not only as a discussion forum for isotope geochemists but also as a source of information and help for researchers from other fields interested in applying stable isotopes as an additional tool in their own studies.
Sub ISOGEOCHEM firstname lastname

Wind erosion and aeolian processes: to promote the exchange of news and information between anyone with an interest in modeling, climatic influences, soils, agricultural and non-agricultural aspects of wind erosion, physics, economics, environmental impacts, etc).
subscribe wind_erosion firstname lastname

Radiocarbon dating: for discussion of radiocarbon dating and related issues in fields connected with scientific dating using radioisotopes.
SUBSCRIBE C14-L firstname lastname

Cosmogenic isotopes: for discusssion of in situ produced cosmogenic nuclides including 3-He, 10-Be, 14-C, 21-Ne, 26-Al, 36-Cl, and 41-Ca.
