IODP Special Sessions (SS-17): Advances in earth sciences from marine scientific drilling
The Canadian Consortium for Ocean Drilling is hosting a Special Session at the 2022 GAC-MAC Joint Annual Meeting in Halifax, NS:
SS-17 The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP): advances in earth sciences from marine scientific drilling
Session Description: The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is a multi-nation research collaboration to investigate Earth’s geological record that is buried in sediments and rocks beneath the seafloor. For over 50 years, deep-sea drilling IODP expeditions have led to many fundamental breakthroughs in the understanding of our oceans, climate, and Earth evolution. Significant contributions to the scientific community that have grown out of IODP research include major progress in the understanding of plate tectonics, critical components of the climate system, gas hydrate reservoirs and the factors controlling their formation, as well as the dynamics of ice sheets and their vulnerability under climate warming. This session aims to highlight ongoing research that uses samples or data collected as part of the IODP program to advance our understanding of climate and ocean change, deep life and biodiversity, connections between deep geological processes and the surface environment, and geohazards.
Researchers are encouraged to submit abstracts to this session on topics that involve samples or data collected by the IODP program. See full session description at bottom of this email.
Abstract submission is open until March 1st. Abstracts can be submitted here.
The conference will take place May 15-18 in a hybrid format with in-person and virtual components. Details available at halifax2022.atlanticgeosciencesociety.ca/
