Course announcement: Parallel Factor Analysis for DOM fluorescence
Register now for online PARAFAC course: October 5-23, 2020
The team behind drEEM and OpenFluor is running a course to teach the use of Parallel Factor Analysis on DOM fluorescence!
This course will provide instruction on best-practice application of PARAFAC to fluorescence datasets. After completing the course, the student should be able to independently produce a validated PARAFAC model from fluorescence and absorbance measurements of dissolved organic matter using the drEEM toolbox in MATLAB.
The course will be delivered online using a combination of written material, recorded lectures and videos, combined with in-person (zoom) Question & Answer sessions. Course instructors will be Kate Murphy, Urban Wünsch and Colin Stedmon, from Chalmers University of Technology and the Technical University of Denmark. Together we have >30 y of experience using and teaching PARAFAC!
- Theory of PARAFAC for fluorescence and underlying assumptions
- Inner filter effects – why they occur and how to deal with them
- Cleaning a fluorescence EEM dataset (identify and eliminate bad data)
- Modeling a fluorescence EEM dataset
- Validating models using internal and external data
- Interpreting PARAFAC models from FDOM
