ECORD MagellanPlus Workshop
Mission-specific platform approaches to assessing natural hazards that impact society
Instituto Dom Luiz, University of Lisbon
Lisbon, Portugal | 7-9 July 2022
The MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme is co-funded by ECORD and ICDP and designed to support scientists in developing new and innovative science to lead to or foster high-quality and innovative scientific drilling proposals for submission to IODP and ICDP.
The organizers expect a workshop of less than 50 participants with diverse expertise, and a balance of genders and career stages, and have secured support for travel and accommodation for up to 15 ECORD participants. Travel funds will be preferentially dedicated to early-career researchers (within 10 years of their terminal degree) and participants who can broaden the perspectives presented at the workshop.
To register please provide a statement of interest, 2-page CV, and letter of support from supervisor (only for students) at the registration page. Also indicate if you would like to give an oral 10-minute presentation or poster in one of the sessions. Deadline for priority registration 1 Feb 2022 (regular registration 15 April 2022). Click here to register. Deadline for white papers 1 June 2022.
The workshop will gather representatives from a range of Earth Science disciplines to focus on three topics of natural hazards that impact society:
- Hazards on active margins
- Hazards on passive margins
- Tropical cyclones in the geologic records
The scope is intentionally broad to explore the range of potential hazards projects that can be supported by the 2050 Science Framework.
The workshop will have the following goals:
- Outline questions in natural hazards that can be addressed with MSP drilling
- Identify field locations to examine those problems
- Develop three pre-proposals for MSP drilling
