Sulfide Mineralization from a Newly Discovered Hydrothermal Field on the Carlsberg Ridge: Evidence from Mineralogy and LA-ICP-MS study

The mafic-hosted and inactive Wocan hydrothermal field, located on an axial volcanic ridge at a depth of ~3000 m at 6°21′N along the slow-spreading Carlsberg Ridge, was discovered and sampled by TV-grab at five stations in 2013 on the DY28 cruise. Preliminary investigations show that the field consists of two mineralization mounds called Wocan-1 which located on the east, and Wocan-2 which ~1.7 km away from Wocan-1 on the west.

Seismic evidence of a detachment fault near the fossil spreading center in the Southwest Sub-basin, South China Sea

In 2010, we conducted an ocean bottom seismometer (OBS) experiment surveying the fossil spreading center in the Southwest Sub-basin of the South China Sea. The detailed velocity model, simulated by two-dimensional ray tracing, shows a strong lateral variation in velocity structure across the spreading ridge.

Travel bursaries and extended deadline of 2014 VentBase 2014

VentBase 2014 is pleased to announce support from InterRidge for two student participants completing post-graduate research in a relevant field. The travel bursaries provided by InterRidge will contribute upto USD 2500 per student towards travel costs associated with the workshop. To apply for a travel bursary, students must submit an abstract/statement of interest through the online submission page. Students will also need to compose a 200 word summary of why the workshop is important to their research and how they think participation will benefit their studies.
