First workshop on seamounts and islands near the spreading centres

Working Group on Mid-Ocean Ridge Islands and Seamounts has interests spanning all science from deep (mantle) to surface (oceanographic, biological) processes on seamounts and islands near the spreading centres and welcomes involvement from anyone wishing to join the workshop. Its first workshop will be held in Lisbon (Portugal) on 19-21 September 2019. This workshop will consider the state of current science on these areas and priorities for future research.
