SCOR-InterRidge Meeting on “Mid-Ocean Ridges and Other Geological Features of the Indian Ocean”
Dates: 14-16 November 2018
Location: Goa (India)
Registration for SCOR-InterRidge Meeting on “Mid-Ocean Ridges and Other Geological Features of the Indian Ocean”, organized on 14-16 November 2018 in Goa (India), is now open. Scientists interested by the themes of the meeting (see below) are invited to mark the dates, register to the meeting, and share this information with their colleagues!
Registration & Practical Information:
Please see the meeting brochure for payment, accommodation, abstract submission and other practical information and register to the meeting starting from today! Deadline for registration: 10 August 2018. A limited number of travel fellowship will be offered by SCOR and InterRidge based on the the situation and motivation of the applicant, followed by a first-come, first-served basis. Please apply for travel fellowship when registering.
The workshop will focus on the geological, geophysical, geochemical and physical aspects of the mid-ocean ridges and the other geological features in the Indian Ocean and provide a forum for exchange of ideas and results. Both the Ridge community and the Marine Geology and Geophysics community are only marginally involved in the International Indian Ocean Expedition – 2 (IIOE-2) and therefore one of the major goals is to develop new international collaboration and programs on geology and geophysics of the Indian Ocean, under IIOE-2. The budget allocated by SCOR and InterRidge will mostly be used to allow students, young scientists, and other scientists to participate.
The following seven themes cover the main peculiarities of the Indian Ocean ridges and geology:
Indian Ocean mid-ocean ridges: hydrothermalism, fragile ecosystem, and deep-sea mining exploration
Indian Ocean mid-ocean ridges: tectonics and magmatism in a wide range of spreading rates
Evolving lithosphere of the Indian Ocean: from mid-ocean ridges to basins to active or passive margins
Complex physical and geochemical aspects of the Indian Ocean mid-ocean ridge system
Aseismic ridges, oceanic plateaus, micro-continents and seamounts of the Indian Ocean
Implications of the collision and subduction on the complex history of the Indian Ocean
Submarine fans and sedimentation history in the Indian Ocean
