US GEOTRACES GP17 cruise planning workshop
6 May 2020 – 8 May 2020
Note: To to the COVID-19 situation, this meeting will be held online via Zoom 6-8 May 2020. It is an invitation-only meeting with a maximum attendance of 70.
US GEOTRACES will hold a workshop 6 – 8 May 2020 at Old Dominion University to coordinate the scientific objectives and supporting logistics for a section to run from Tahiti to Amundsen Sea to the Chilean shelf (GEOTRACES Section GP17). Because of logistics issues this section would involve two separate research cruises, tentatively planned for late 2021 and early 2022. Principal investigators interested in conducting research as part of one or both of these cruises are invited to attend a project planning workshop in Norfolk, VA (details to follow). No prior involvement in GEOTRACES is necessary to participate.
An essential goal of this workshop is to supply potential participants and collaborators with all the pertinent details on, and science behind, the proposed cruises so that they can write successful proposals and therefore make the collaborative GP17 cruises a success. Workshop participants will have an opportunity to present their anticipated research contributions for the section in very brief advocacy talks.
