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

Recent paper of InterRidge Working Group on Ecological Connectivity and Resilience

InterRidge Working Group on Ecological Connectivity and Resilience, chaired by Anna Metaxas and Lauren Mullineaux, has recently published a review entitled "Exploring the Ecology of Deep-Sea Hydrothermal Vents in a Metacommunity Framework" in Frontiers in Marine Science. Congratulations to authors for this thorough review of current knowledge and gaps on the mechanisms supporting the stability of vent meta-communities, of high relevance to the assessment of impacts at regional scales and design of protection plans!

Final Report from the Workshop of The InterRidge Working Group "Oceanic Transform Faults"

Forty-two international scientists participated in the two and a half day (22 to 24 May 2018) workshop held at the campus of the Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer (IUEM), Plouzané, France. The meeting began with a series of keynote talks and poster presentations covering different subjects such as global characterization of transform faults and their relation to mid-oceanic ridges and different approaches to understand, discover, and model processes active at transforms and fracture zones.

Brief report from IR OTF Workshop

The first workshop of the InterRidge Working Group on Oceanic Transforms took place from 22nd to 24th May in Brest/Plouzané (France). The workshop was attended by 40 international scientists from 7 specialities. Five attendants were supported by InterRidge travel bursaries: 3 from USA, 1 from China and 1 from Germany.

Call for proposals of new InterRidge Working Groups

The InterRidge WGs play an essential role in promoting, facilitating, and coordinating new researches that focus on a theme of emerging scientific promise or are conducted in a unique geographic setting along global ridge-crests. Such researches should significantly benefit from the InterRidge coordination. A typical WG is coordinated by two co-chairs and gathers about ten active members reflecting the national and disciplinary diversity of InterRidge.
