Working Group on Seamounts and Islands - workshop information

The first workshop of the IR Working group on mid-ocean ridge islands and seamounts will be convened over three days (19 to 21 September 2019) in which participants will be able to exchange thoughts on priorities for research on seamounts and islands near to mid-ocean ridges. It will cover all geological, biology and oceanographic processes. The workshop will be hosted by the Instituto Hidrográfico, Lisbon (Portugal), within the beautiful grounds of a previous convent (Convento Trinas).

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
