ECORD Summer School for IODP Science

1317 September 2021

We are excited to announce, that we will be taking the “ECORD Summer School for IODP Science” online this year.

The school will take place between the 13th and 17th of September 2021 and combine in-person sessions with asynchronous teaching, group activities and exercises form the IODP world.

This Summer School introduces the interpretation and applications of downhole logs and physical property data primarily from the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). The School explores the relevance and unique insights of these data for a range of fields, including paleoclimatology, sedimentology, hydrogeology, and broader geological and ecological processes such as sediment provenance and water column productivity.

The Summer School is open to applicants from all career stages and geoscience backgrounds. However, the course is tailored for individuals who:

  1. are early in their career and/or would like to introduce and make use of more physical properties data in their research and/or;
  2. would like to get more involved in IODP in some capacity, either through accessing and using data or sailing on an IODP research expedition.

Introductory sessions on petrophysics, the study of the physical (and chemical) properties of rocks and their interactions with fluids, are at the heart of the Summer School. These core principles are then used for insight into broader marine geoscience questions and environments through practical exercises and presentations that provide experience of interpreting log data and integrating them with other datasets based on real world applications.
