Experts in scientific fields routinely operate under less-than-ideal conditions. We present a deployed data analysis system for cosmogenic isotope dating, a domain that is fraught with difficult automation issues. First, experts must work with a huge array of possible parameters. Our system ACE handles this issue by pushing the bounds of software flexibility. Furthermore, isotope dating experts reason about groups of samples using a large number of vague and contradictory heuristics. Calvin, an argumentation system, addresses this issue. Our intelligent data analysis tool is in daily use by isotope dating experts.
