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.
Registration by email to before 17 February 2019.

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.
