First iMOVE workshop - short summary

The first InterRidge workshop of 2019 saw the iMOVE working group gather in Bergen, Norway from February 6-8 for their inaugural workshop. iMOVE, which stands for integrated Multidisciplinary Observations in Vent Environments, aims to bring together ridge crest observatory operators and scientists to facilitate data and technology transfer and sharing, and develop new research ideas. The very successful Bergen workshop assembled 24 people from 6 countries, representing disciplines ranging from geophysics to microbiology, and for the first time, brought together representatives from the three ridge-crest seafloor observatories operated by the EMSO, OOI and ONC networks. The group spent two and a half days exchanging ideas, providing updates on observatory status and developing plans for future collaborations. A full workshop report will be soon made available on the Interridge webpage. Stay tuned!
