Meet InterRidge at AGU 2018, let funding agencies know you need InterRidge!

Meet InterRidge at AGU 2018, let funding agencies know you need InterRidge!

Jérôme Dyment, one of the two InterRidge co-chairs, is participating to the AGU meeting during the whole week.  If you have ideas to share about how InterRidge - with its limited budget - can better help you, your research, and your community, feel free to contact us at interridge@ipgp.fr or Jérôme in person at the meeting.

At a time funding agencies are having difficulties to contribute to the program, feel free to drop a short message to let us (and eventually them) know how much you need InterRidge!  Your contribution is appreciated.

7th International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals

​The International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals is the premier meeting for scientists, explorers, managers, policymakers, industry specialists and students to exchange ideas and share knowledge of deep-sea and cold-water corals and their ecosystems. Topics of this meeting will include biodiversity, ecology, evolution, environment, climate, fisheries, sponges, associated fauna, mesophotic ecosystems, anthropogenic impacts, technology, and conservation.​

GeoHab 2019 Annual Conference

The GeoHab 2019 Annual Conference will be held in St. Petersburg (Russia) at A. P. Karpinsky Russian Geological Research Institute from 13 to 17 May 2019.

GEOHAB (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying geological, biological, and physical oceanographic processes as indicators of benthic habitats and ecosystems and used as proxies for biological communities and species diversity. The GeoHab Community is linking geology and biology.

EGU 2019 Session: Oceanic and continental transform faults: towards a multi-disciplinary approach

Oceanic and continental transform faults: towards a multi-disciplinary approach
Convener: João C. Duarte
Co-Conveners: Daniele Brunelli, Barry Hanan, Marcia Maia, Mathieu Rodriguez

This session is promoted by the Oceanic Transform Faults working group of InterRidge and aims to present recent results on studies of these large features, especially on the rheology, deformation patterns, rupture processes, fluid circulation and physical properties of transform faults. We welcome observational studies on strike-slip and transform faults, both continental and oceanic, on fracture zones and on transform continental margins

Brief report from the SCOR-InterRidge Meeting on "Mid-Ocean Ridges and Other Geological Features of the Indian Ocean"

The Meeting on "Mid-Ocean Ridges and Other Geological Features of the Indian Ocean" Organized jointly by Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research & InterRidge, hosted jointly by CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography & ESSO-National Centre for Polar and Ocean Research took place on 14 - 16 November 2018 in Goa (India). The workshop was attended by 128 scientists. Ten international attendants and 17 young scientists from India were supported with travel awards funded jointly by SCOR & InterRidge.

First workshop on seamounts and islands near the spreading centres

Working Group on Mid-Ocean Ridge Islands and Seamounts has interests spanning all science from deep (mantle) to surface (oceanographic, biological) processes on seamounts and islands near the spreading centres and welcomes involvement from anyone wishing to join the workshop. Its first workshop will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) on 19-21 September 2019. This workshop will consider the state of current science on these areas and priorities for future research.

First iMOVE workshop

The first iMOVE workshop will be held in Bergen (Norway) on 6-8 February 2019. The objectives will be to (1) set up the basis for the 'iMOVE online platform' that will link to all observatories websites and data repositories, (2) discuss/produce a report on means for data integration, and the future of observatories - where are we after a decade? what observatories for tomorrow?, and (3) prepare the second larger workshop/conference that will be dedicated to scientific results.

Framing a successor program to IODP

The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) organizes the workshop PROCEED – exPanding fROntiers of sCiEntific cEan Drilling – aiming at initiating concepts and defining new goals for a future international scientific ocean drilling program to be developed beyond 2023 as a successor to the International Ocean Discovery Prog

Note from the SCOR Annual Meeting

The 2018 Scientific Committee on Oceanic Research (SCOR) Annual Meeting was held in Plymouth (UK) on 4-6 September 2018. InterRidge, being a SCOR-affiliated program, has been represented by its coordinator. The meeting was an opportunity to review all SCOR activities, approve new working groups, discuss on budget, elections and other activities for 2019, and vote on SCOR Constitution.

SCOR-InterRidge Meeting on Indian Ocean - new deadline for registration
