We are very happy to announce the upcoming ECORD MagellanPlus 21st Century Drilling workshop series. During two linked five-day workshops, hosted at the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Bremen Core Repository and MARUM (Germany), we will create new records (core descriptions, geochemistry) from digital core and evaluate this data with reassessment of physical cores using Miocene cores from the South Atlantic. Online syntheses will develop best practices for digital drilling of legacy materials while aiming to advance our understanding of the distribution of Miocene ice rafted debris.
Applications are currently open for Workshop 1 (8-12 April 2024) with the deadline for submissions on the 28th of January 2024. We are looking for ~10 participants interested in joining this workshop as part of teams in Core Description, Biostratigraphy and Geochemistry-Physical Properties (roughly 3-4 people per team). We’re keen to invite experienced researchers and ECRs alike, both with and without prior (shipboard) IODP experience. Some MagellanPlus funding is available for participants from ECORD countries. If you are interested in applying, please see the website for more details: https://le.ac.uk/iodp/events/21st-century-drilling. You will find a link there to the application form where you can upload a short motivation letter and CV.
