Take part in Expedition 389 Hawaiian Drowned Reefs

The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) offers you the unique opportunity to sail on the IODP Expedition 389 Hawaiian Drowned Reefs.
The overall goal of the expedition is to sample a unique succession of drowned coral reefs around Hawaii now at -134 to -1155 m below sea level.

The offshore phase of the expedition is scheduled for September-October 2019 (maximum of 60 days), with only a subset of the Science Party participating. Offshore activities will focus on core recovery, curation, sampling for ephemeral properties, biostratigraphy, physical properties, preliminary lithostratigraphy and downhole logging. The cores will not be split at sea.
Subsequently, an Onshore Science Party (OSP) will be held at the MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences, University of Bremen, Germany, starting in mid- to late-January 2020 for a maximum of 4 weeks long.

Framing a successor programme to IODP

ECORD organises the workshop PROCEED –  EXPANDING FRONTIERS OF SCIENTIFIC OCEAN DRILLING – aiming at initiating concepts and defining new goals for a future international scientific ocean drilling programme to be developed beyond 2023. Special emphasis will be on new science frontiers and technological developments in a multiple drilling platform approach.
The workshop will be held at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, Vienna (Austria), on 6 -7 April 2019, before the 2019 EGU.

MagellanPlus Workshop: Navigating the IODP Proposal System

The MagellanPlus Workshop Navigating the IODP Proposal System addresses PhD and Early-Career Researchers and will be held from 24-26 September 2018, at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, University of Southampton, UK.
Through informative introductory lectures by some of Europe’s most experienced ocean drilling scientists and active participation in group writing exercises, the early-career delegates will work together in teams to develop hypothetical drilling proposals. These will then be presented to a Science Evaluation Panel for feedback and eventual selection of a winning team. There will be opportunities for each delegate to present their science as posters and short “3 minute thesis”-style introductory pitches.
The registration closing date has been extended to 4 September 2018 for Non UK-based ECORD applicants via

Registration has closed for UK-based applicants.
This event is being sponsored by the NERC UK-IODP and ECORD/ICDP MagellanPlus programmes.
