Reproducibility in cyclostratigraphy:
initiating an intercomparison project
Matthias Sinnesael thanks the Research Foudation – Flanders (FWO) for the awarded PhD fellowship (FWOTM782) and IAS for the EGU Travel Grant.
Scope and Objectives
The objective of this project is to investigate and quantify reproducibility
of cyclostratigraphic studies and to provide a platform to discuss the
merits and pitfalls of different methodologies, and their applicability.
The project will be structured around several “test scenarios”, which are
signals to be analyzed by participants that feature state-of-the-art
challenges in time-series analysis of geologic signals. Participants will be
solicited to submit and/or present and describe their solutions to one or
several of the ”test scenarios” at a common event (e.g. workshop).

Food for Thought
How researcher-dependent are cyclostratigraphic interpretations?
Is this a problem and can we do something about it?
