Short report from the 1st workshop of the the Working Group on Seafloor Massive Sulfides Resource along MOR

From September 19th to 22nd, 2019, the 1st international workshop organized by the InterRidge Working Group on SMS resource along MOR was held at Hangzhou, China with a great success. More than 150 SMS related scientists and students from worldwide participated in this workshop and had in-depth discussion with focus on the theme of "hydrothermal ore-forming processes". During the three days, the participants exchanged ideas in various ways – primary/early career presentations, posters, plenary/break-out brainstorm and so on.

Short report from the workshop of the the Working Group on Seamounts and Islands associated with MOR

Between 19 and 21 September 2019 the Interridge Working Group on Seamounts and Islands associated with Mid-Ocean Ridges held its inaugural workshop in the Instituto Hidrográfico in Lisbon (Portugal). During the three days of the workshop the international participants discussed the main scientific and logistic challenges related to research of seamounts and islands.

Details about the IR workshop on "Hydrothermal Ore-forming Processes" in Hangzou (China)

The 1st international workshop organized by the InterRidge Working Group on Seafloor Massive Sulfides Resource along MOR is going to be held at Braim Canal Hotel between 19 and 22 September, 2019, in Hangzhou, China. The theme is “Hydrothermal ore-forming processes and the fate of SMS deposits along slow and ultraslow spreading MOR”.

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).

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:
