InterRidge Workshop on Seamounts and Islands near Mid-Ocean Ridges: Provisional Schedule

The preliminary schedule for the September workshop of the Working Group on Seamounts and Islands near to Mid-Ocean Ridges held on 19-21 September 2019 in Lisbon.

Ofioliti Journal

Ofioliti is an open-access international journal with the main goal of diffusing the knowledge on ophiolites and modern oceanic lithosphere. In 43 years of activity, Ofioliti published original papers dealing with geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, stratigraphy, tectonics, biostratigraphy, and paleogeography. All papers published in Ofioliti from 1998 are available online, free of charge.

36th International Geological Congress (IGC)

The 36th International Geological Congress (IGC), is scheduled to be held on 2-8 March 2020 in New Delhi (http://www.36igc.org/36thigc). This prestigious platform provides ample opportunity to the global geoscientific community across the continents and oceans to interact, present and discuss various scientific issues. The Science Program of the 36th IGC comprises of 264 Symposia under 44 Themes (http://www.36igc.org/science-program).

1st workshop of the IR WG on MOR Islands and Seamounts - call for abstracts

The 1st international workshop organized by the InterRidge Working Group on MOR Islands and Seamounts will be held between 19 and 21 September 2019, in Lisbon (Portugal). The workshop aims to identify priority areas for research in all aspects of islands and seamounts located near to ridges, including geological, oceanographic and biological aspects. Participation in the workshop is open to anybody outside the WG and will involve an extended poster session on the first day.

Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative by the Moore Foundation

The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation is launching a new area of research, the Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative. Over the next nine years, the foundation will invest $140 million to support development of new tools, theory and concepts about aquatic symbioses and to bring different research communities together to learn how symbioses involving microorganisms function, evolve and serve critical ecosystem roles in marine and freshwater environments.

Call for abstracts for the upcoming "InterRidge Workshop on Hydrothermal Ore-forming Processes"

We have a pleasure to announce the call for abstracts for the upcoming "InterRidge Workshop on Hydrothermal Ore-forming Processes", organized by the InterRidge Working Group on Seafloor Massive Sulfides Resource along MOR between 19 and 21 September 2019, in Hangzhou, China. The overall theme of the workshop will be focused on hydrothermal ore-forming processes and the fate of Seafloor Massive Sulfide (SMS) deposits along slow and ultraslow spreading mid-ocean ridge system (MOR).

Simons Foundation - Postdoctoral Fellowships in Marine Microbial Ecology

Opportunity

The Simons Foundation invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships to support research on fundamental problems in marine microbial ecology. The foundation is particularly interested in applicants with training in different fields who want to apply their experience to understanding the role of microorganisms in shaping ocean processes, and vice versa, as well as applicants with experience in modeling or theory development.

NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research Federal Funding Opportunity for Ocean Exploration

The NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research (OER) is soliciting ocean exploration proposals to address knowledge gaps and support growth in the Nation's Blue Economy and/or to contribute to Seabed 2030 goals. Proposals are being requested on the following three topics:

First iMOVE workshop - short summary

The first InterRidge workshop of 2019 saw the iMOVE working group gather in Bergen, Norway from February 6-8 for their inaugural workshop. iMOVE, which stands for integrated Multidisciplinary Observations in Vent Environments, aims to bring together ridge crest observatory operators and scientists to facilitate data and technology transfer and sharing, and develop new research ideas.
