You are invited to submit an abstract to the AGU Winter Meeting, held 
December 14-18 in San Francisco. We will be holding a session in the 
VGP section:

V19: Standards for Microanalysis: EPMA, LA-ICPMS and SIMS--Where are 
we and Where do we Need to Go?

Often the most critical possession of a microanalytical lab is not 
the expensive instrumentation but rather its collection of standards. 
But how good are those standards?  More detailed investigations and 
comparisons of some standard materials have revealed inhomogeneities 
and values contradictory to the accepted/published ones.  This is an 
opportunity for microanalysts to meet and share experiences and 
critically evaluate the standards which we are currently using. We 
will also have presentations by those who create, develop, and 
certify standards.  This is your chance to populate a new standards 
wish list for the microanalytical community. (Cosponsored by 
Microbeam Analysis Society)
