Meeting: Advancing US Continental Scientific Drilling and Coring

The NSF-funded Continental Scientific Drilling Coordination Office (CSDCO) and LacCore invite applications to attend a community meeting of US scientists engaged with continental scientific drilling and coring, to be held June 4-5, 2015 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The meeting will provide a forum to discuss recent, ongoing, and proposed projects, community-wide initiatives, and the operations and activities of the newly-formed CSDCO. Participant travel support will be provided by NSF, as part of CSDCO operational funding.

The CSDCO coordinates and supports all aspects of continental scientific drilling and coring, including project development, logistics, field operations, laboratory analyses, sample and data curation, cyberinfrastructure development and utilization, and broader impacts activities. We invite participation from individuals in the full range of geoscience disciplines that utilize drilling and coring techniques on Earth’s continents, from soft sediments and soils to hard rock, whether shallow or deep. International applications are welcome, though the primary focus for this meeting will be the United States community of scientists.

To apply, fill out this form by Friday, April 24:

2015 Summer Institute in Earth Surface Dynamics

The National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED) is now accepting applications for the 7th annual Summer Institute for Earth-surface Dynamics (SIESD). SIESD is a two week institute designed to engage young scientists (advanced Ph. D. students, post-doc, and early career scientists) in a focused topic of Earth-surface dynamics through lectures, laboratory experiments, numerical modeling, and fieldwork.

This year’s institute is July 27-August 5th, 2015, and will be hosted at Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. See the attached flyer to learn more about this year’s theme of “Summers in the Swamp: Self-Organization in Landscapes and its Residue in the Stratigraphic Record.”

Deadline to apply is May 15, 2015! Apply here: http://www.nced.umn.edu/siesd-2015-application

If you have questions, please email Dr. Anjali Fernandes at anjalifernandes@gmail.com.
