Working Group Proposal

2013 update

the 2013 activities of the Oceanic Detachments InterRidge Working Group.

These are basically:

 (1) Convening a topical session at the  2013 AGU Fall Meeting;

2014 SCOR InterRidge Working Group Report

N. Le Bris 31.05.2014

The  Working Group has organized its third meeting in Vienna, Austria, in the context of the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2014. The WG meeting was held  on April 28th, with the primary aim of discussing the review papers that are proposed as deliverables in the WG terms of references.

2011 WG proposal

The InterRidge Long-Range Exploration Working Group (LREWG) made enormous headway in scoping both the scientific drivers for and the technological requirements of long-range exploration of the spreading axes. The resulting report (see http://www.interridge.org/files/interridge/LREWG_Report_Final_web_0.pdf) highlighted several regions of the world´s oceans which, for many ridge-related scientific disciplines, it would be important to explore thoroughly and on a large scale.
