Workshop on the future of Scientific Ocean Drilling

ECORD and Japan have developed a new program to facilitate post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling using Mission Specific Platforms.
The aim of this workshop is to encourage new scientific collaborations among the scientific communities of ECORD and Japan, together with international partners, in an online-onlyscientific workshop.
This workshop, which will take place over three days, will serve to review the status of planning of post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling, communicate the intention of the new ECORD-Japan program and collect new ideas for the development of new MSP and Chikyu drilling proposals based on identified knowledge gaps and novel scientific questions to be addressed in the next 5-10 years.
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSION MONDAY 19 DECEMBER
Day 1: 17 January 2023 – Introduction and Keynote presentations
Day 2: 19 January 2023 – Breakout session I & Plenary session
Day 3: 26 January 2023 – Breakout session II & Plenary session
Same time every day
CET 09:30 – 12:30

Call for MagellanPlus workshop proposals

The ECORD/ICDP MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme aims to foster the development of new IODP/ICDP drilling projects, and invites scientists from ECORD/ICDP member countries to propose workshops for the elaboration of compelling drilling proposals.
MagellanPlus welcomes proposals for workshops aimed at generating MSP drilling proposals, either as stand-alone projects or as part of land-to-sea transects that integrate marine and continental coring. Scientific themes must be aligned with the Strategic Objectives defined in the 2050 Science Framework, i.e.:
– Earth’s Climate System;
– Feedbacks in the Earth System;
– Tipping Points in Earth’s History;
– Global Cycles of Energy and Matter;
– Natural Hazards Impacting Society;
– The Oceanic Life Cycle of Tectonic Plates;
– Habitability and Life on Earth (e.g., deep biosphere).
Workshops may be either focused on specific scientific ideas and targets or be designed to explore a range of potential ideas related to the Strategic Objectives listed above.
The contribution of the MagellanPlus Workshop Series will not exceed 15,000 € per workshop.
Call for MagellanPlus proposals – deadline: 15 January 2023

Workshop on the future of Scientific Drilling

 Workshop on the future of Scientific Ocean Drilling with
with Mission-Specific Platforms and Chikyu – Jointly organised by ESSAC and J-DESC

ECORD and Japan have developed a new program to facilitate post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling using Mission Specific Platforms. The aim of this workshop is to encourage new scientific collaborations among the scientific communities of ECORD and Japan, together with international partners, in an online-only scientific workshop. This workshop, which will take place over three-days, will serve to review the status of planning of post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling, communicate the intention of the new ECORD-Japan program and collect new ideas for the development of new MSP and Chikyu drilling proposals based on identified knowledge gaps and novel scientific questions to be addressed in the next 5-10 years. The workshop will be structured following the Strategic Objectives of the 2050 Science Framework and will be open to participation of scientists from the whole international geoscience community. Participation from people with no prior involvement in scientific drilling is welcome.
The second phase of the workshop will be an in-person meeting in Fall 2023 with the purpose of developing the most promising ideas generated from the phase 1 workshop into drilling proposals.
Dates of the Phase-1 online Workshop:
Tuesday January 17 2003 (3 hours)
Thursday January 19 2023 (3 hours)
Thursday January 26 2023 (3 hours)
Same time every day
