Highlight your “greatest hits” science contributions from carbonate clumped isotopes (June 1 deadline)

18 May 2022
Dear clumped community, 

We (Kate Huntington + Sierra Petersen) are working on a clumped isotopes review article for Annual Review of Earth and Planetary Sciences, and we’d like your help highlighting the most significant science contributions produced by carbonate clumped isotope geochemistry. Specifically, in an effort to avoid too much bias towards our own spheres of work, we’re reaching out to ask you to list your own key science contributions/papers via this Google Form by June 1, 2022
 What we are asking:
Please use this form to highlight the “greatest hit” papers out of your own body of work and why they were transformative for the science applications. You are welcome to suggest key works by others, but we’re hoping to make this easy by having everyone highlight the work they know best - their own. We encourage all authors, including students, postdocs, early career scientists and those from marginalized groups, to contribute. Please share the form with others. Don’t worry about duplicate submissions. 
 What should be included:
This review focuses on clumped isotopes in carbonate only (no clumped CH4, O2). Please include only science contributions - not technique development, which is already covered elsewhere in the paper. 
 **We’re not looking for an exhaustive bibliography, but rather for your insight into the most important findings and impacts of the method, from early contributions to today.**
 How the results will be used:
The crowd-sourced list of contributions will help inform the scope and examples highlighted in the review paper. Due to strict word count and citation limits of the manuscript format, some contributions may not be included or may be combined with others. If this comes together to be a nice annotated bibliography of clumped studies, we will clean it up and share it back with the community.
 The form will ask you for the paper (or papers if more than one on a single topic) and a sentence or two on the findings. We are hoping to answer questions like “Why was it critical to use clumped isotopes for this study?” and “How did this finding change thinking in the field?”. 
 You are welcome to submit the form multiple times if you want to highlight contributions in multiple areas.
 This would have been a fun discussion to have with all of you at an in-person ICIW spring 2022, but the pandemic had other plans. Thank you for taking a minute to share your thoughts on this form instead!
