3rd World Conference on Marine Biodiversity (WCMB-2014) will be held
from October 12-16, 2014 in Qingdao, China with the theme of 'Life in the
WCMB-2014 will take the form of keynote lectures, oral presentations,
posters and exhibitions. It will cover topics from recent breakthroughs in
Marine Biodiversity. WCMB-2014 will continue to provide a platform for
marine scientists to debate on the issues affecting the progress of this
emerging field and identify the challenges and opportunities facing the
development of marine biodiversity.
Call for proposals:
InterRidge Student and Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme 2014
All application materials are to be submitted electronically to the InterRidge Coordinator (email@example.com;firstname.lastname@example.org) by 31 March 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.
INTERRIDGE: THIRD DECADAL PLAN 2014-23
From ridge crest to deep-ocean trench: Formation and Evolution of the Oceanic Crust and Its Interaction with the Ocean, Biosphere, Climate and Human Society
A plan for the third decade of InterRidge science
InterRidge is the only scientific organisation that spans the single largest geological domain on the planet: the Earth’s oceanic crust, representing more than 60% of the Earth’s surface. The background for this framework is the recognition of a number of key areas of research that are needed to underpin our developing understanding of the formation and evolution of the oceanic crust and its interaction with the ocean, biosphere, climate and human society. The role of InterRidge has evolved from facilitating cooperation between ridge crest scientists to helping science focus on the major and fundamental aspects of ocean crust generation and evolution; from genesis at the ridge crest, to evolution on the flanks and under the abyssal plains to its fate at convergent margins, subduction zones, arcs and back-arc systems.
