SCOR - InterRidge Meeting on Indian Ocean

The SCOR - InterRidge Meeting on "Mid-Ocean Ridges and Other Geological Features of the Indian Ocean" will take place on 14-16 November, 2018, in Goa, India.


This meeting aims to encourage involvement of the Ridge and Marine Geology and Geophysics communities in the International Indian Ocean Expedition - 2 (IIOE-2). The budget allocated by SCOR and InterRidge will mostly be used to allow students, young scientists, or other scientists to participate, with special attention given to countries bounding the Indian Ocean and potentially involved in the IIOE-2.

EGU session "Fluid circulation in magmatic hydrothermal systems"

we would like to draw your attention to session GD2.8/EMRP4.2 - "Fluid circulation in magmatic hydrothermal systems", taking place on the upcoming EGU General Assembly, 17 – 22 April 2016 in Vienna. Session description: Hydrothermal fluids that circulate in the crust in active volcanic areas on land and in the oceans efficiently mine heat from Earth`s interior, and play an important role in the formation of associated mineral deposits. Hydrothermal fluids undergo significant changes (e.g.

Three students wins the "best student presentation award" in the third interridge theoretical Institute

During the third InterRidge Theoretical Insitute, each poster presentation was given 5 minutes to present his/her work orally. The presentations are scored by the senior scientists according to their poster, oral presentation and scientific accievements. 3 students wins the "best student presentation award" in the third interridge theoretical Institute.  They are

The curtain of the third InterRidge Theoretical Institute closed.

The third InterRidge Theoretical Institute have successfully ended on 27th September, 2015 after three days gathering. About 150 scientists from France, United Kingdom, Japan, Canada, USA, Germany, Portugal and China attended this events. 27 oral talks and 38 posters are presented during this event. Dr. Jian Lin from led the discussion on the summary of IRTI Recommendations. Progress have been made towards enhanced international deep-ocean exploration and networking of young scientists. 3 students have been selected by senior scientists to be awarded the “best student presentation awards.”
