WORKSHOP: Demystifying the IODP Proposal Process for Early Career Scientists: Pacific Ocean
February 17-20, 2020; Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, Columbia University, Palisades, NY
Deadline extended to November 6, 2019 to encourage participation from early career scientists focused on the Earth Connections and Earth in Motion themes of the IODP Science Plan.
Earth Connections: Deep Processes and Their Impact on Earth’s Surface Environment
- composition, structure, and dynamics of Earth’s upper mantle
- seafloor spreading, mantle melting, ocean crustal architecture
- chemical exchanges between ocean crust and seawater
- subduction zone initiation, volatile cycling, and generation of continental crust
Earth in Motion: Processes and Hazards on Human Time Scales
- mechanisms for earthquakes, landslides, and tsunami
- properties and processes that govern subseafloor carbon flow and storage
- fluids linking subseafloor tectonic, thermal, and biogeochemical processes
Scientific ocean drilling is central to the study of Earth’s climate history, tectonic evolution, geohazards, and deep biosphere. In an effort to foster a larger, more dynamic, and more diverse ocean drilling community, we encourage early career researchers to apply to this workshop, Demystifying the IODP Proposal Process for Early Career Scientists: Pacific Ocean.
The workshop will begin with a series of speakers explaining the structure of IODP and how early career scientists can become involved in IODP activities, from sailing to expedition proposals. Then, workshop participants will work on the initial stages of developing real drilling proposals in the Pacific Ocean, where the JOIDES Resolution is expected to be operating beginning in 2023-2024.
The deadline to submit an application has been extended to November 6, 2019 to encourage more participation in the Earth Connections and Earth in Motion themes. We aim to attract a diverse array of specialists (in geophysics, paleoceanography, deep biosphere, tectonics, etc.) to facilitate interdisciplinary collaborations. Workshop participation support is available from the U.S. Science Support Program for IODP, for a limited number of graduate students and early career researchers (i.e., those who have completed their PhD within the past 10 years) from U.S. institutions and organizations.
