We encourage you to download
and evaluate the latest release, the ".jar" file found here.
ET_Redux requires Oracle's Java 1.8. Java 1.9 and 1.10 are no longer supported and Java 1.11 through 1.17 involve major architectural changes that we have elected to avoid until 2024-2025. You can read here about the community's plans for Java.
UPDATE JAN 2021 Liberica OpenJDK 8 also works: be sure to download the "full jre" or "full jdk".
ET_Redux is the flagship cyber infrastructure product of CIRDLES, the Cyber Infrastructure Research and Development Lab for the Earth Sciences, an undergraduate research lab at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina. ET_Redux was previously known as U-Pb_Redux, but in January of 2015, was renamed to reflect its expanding functionality and its sponsor, EARTHTIME (EARTH-TIME.org).
ET_Redux currently serves the ID-TIMS and LAICP-MS U-Pb geochronology communities.
We have recently received NSF funding to extend the architecture to Uranium series analyses, as explained here.
As of March 2015, we are migrating our content from CIRDLES.org to this site, with the goal of stimulating community involvement.
