Biogeochemical Interactions at Deep-Sea Vents
Working Group Update 2008

N. Le Bris, Working Group Chair

Members
The WG for Biogeochemical Interactions at Deep-Sea Vents had one new change in membership for 2008. Huaiyang Zhou has joined the IR WG for Deep-Earth Sampling, and we invited Xiqiu Han (Second Institute of Oceanography, China) to join our WG in replacement. Xiqiu's expertise in oxygen and carbon isotopic signatures of chemosynthetic processes fits perfectly with the WG objectives, and she will bring a complementary view from China.

New SCOR Working Group: "Hydrothermal energy transfer and its impact on ocean carbon cycles"

InterRidge is pleased to announce the approval of a new SCOR Working Group in Oct. 2008, to be co-funded by InterRidge, on "Hydrothermal energy transfer and its impact on ocean carbon cycles." This new Working Group (SCOR WG 135) is co-chaired by Nadine Le Bris (IFREMER, France) and Chris German (WHOI, USA). The proposal was developed from discussions at the InterRidge Theoretical Institute (IRTI) on Biogeochemical Interaction at Deep-Sea Vents, held in September 2007.
