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.

Mr. Masakazu FUJII from University of Tokyo, Japan
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.”
The agenda for the Theoretical Institute is available on line at
and the Poster Number can be find at
Each speaker will be given 30 mins for the presentation, including 20-35min talk and 5-10min questions.
Mapping the oceans: co-ordinating seabed and habitat mapping for maritime spatial planning.
Session ID#: 9526
Globally it is estimated that hydrographic maps are available for only 5% of the world’s oceans, even less of which have been mapped geologically or to identify benthic habitats.
The EGU General Assembly 2015 will bring together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.

EGU session on Seafloor Observatories OS4.7:Seafloor Observatories: Design, Results, and Integration Convener: Mairi Best | Co-Conveners: Robert Weller , Henry Ruhl , Jean-Francois Rolin , Martin Scherwath A growing number of seafloor observatories around the world provide power and communications for (near)-real-time monitoring of environmental processes across the geosphere, biosphere, and hydrosphere. A key strength of observatory design is its ability to address interdisciplinary objectives simultaneously across temporal and spatial scales.
