ECORD Summer School:
From Ridges to Flanks to Mar­gins
– li­thos­phe­re dy­na­mics and con­nec­tions to glo­bal en­vi­ron­men­tal chan­ges
2 – 13 Sep­tem­ber 2024

Application deadline: 31 May 2024

The ECORD Sum­mer School on “From ridges to flanks to mar­gins – li­thos­phe­re dy­na­mics and con­nec­tions to glo­bal en­vi­ron­men­tal change” 2024 will place from 2 to 13 Sep­tem­ber 2024 at the MARUM – Cen­ter for Ma­ri­ne En­vi­ron­men­tal Sci­en­ces, Bre­men Uni­ver­si­ty, Ger­ma­ny.

It is or­ga­ni­zed by Dr. Ur­su­la Röhl, Head of the IODP Bre­men Core Re­po­si­to­ry (BCR), Prof. Dr. Wolf­gang Bach, Pro­fes­sor for the Pe­tro­lo­gy of the oce­an crust at MARUM, and Prof. Dr. Dierk Heb­beln, Gra­dua­te Dean of the Bre­men In­ter­na­tio­nal Gra­dua­te School for Ma­ri­ne Sci­en­ces (GLO­MAR).

MARUM and its In­ter­na­tio­nal Gra­dua­te School for Ma­ri­ne Sci­en­ces GLO­MAR, as well as the BCR joint­ly of­fer the uni­que trai­ning pos­si­bi­li­ties used for this sum­mer school by pro­vi­ding la­bo­ra­to­ry and se­mi­nar fa­ci­li­ties.

The ma­jor goal is to bring PhD stu­dents and young Post­docs in touch with IODP at an ear­ly sta­ge of their ca­re­er, in­form them about the ex­cit­ing re­se­arch wi­t­hin IODP as (I)ODP and DSDP have been pro­ven to be the most suc­cess­ful in­ter­na­tio­nal­ly col­la­bo­ra­ti­ve re­se­arch pro­grams in the his­to­ry of Earth sci­en­ces, and to pre­pa­re them for future participation in drilling expeditions. Such trai­ning will be achie­ved by ta­king the sum­mer school par­ti­ci­pants on a “shipboard simulation” whe­re they get fa­mi­li­a­ri­zed with a wide spec­trum of sta­te-of-the-art ana­ly­ti­cal tech­no­lo­gies and core de­scrip­ti­on and scan­ning me­thods ac­cor­ding to the high stan­dards of oce­an dril­ling ex­pe­di­ti­ons. In ad­di­ti­on, the the­ma­tic to­pic of the sum­mer school will be re­view­ed by va­rious sci­en­ti­fic lec­tu­res by the lea­ding ex­perts in the field.

The course fee is 150 EUR.
The fee in­clu­des: lec­tu­res and lec­tu­re no­tes; cof­fee breaks; so­ci­al din­ner. The fee does not include: tra­vel, me­als, ac­com­mo­da­ti­on.
