Preview to 2009 InterRidge Newsletter: Oceanic Core Complex - Atlantis Massif, Mid-Atlantic Ridge 30°N

The cover of the 2009 InterRidge Newsletter will highlight research on oceanic core complexes. As a preview to this year's upcoming issue, we posted here the PDF for an article that will be included in the section for International Research at the Mid-Atlantic Ridge:
"Seismic Velocity Variation within the Footwall of an Oceanic Core Complex - Atlantis Massif, Mid-Atlantic Ridge 30°N"

New SCOR Working Group: "Hydrothermal energy transfer and its impact on ocean carbon cycles"

InterRidge is pleased to announce the approval of a new SCOR Working Group in Oct. 2008, to be co-funded by InterRidge, on "Hydrothermal energy transfer and its impact on ocean carbon cycles." This new Working Group (SCOR WG 135) is co-chaired by Nadine Le Bris (IFREMER, France) and Chris German (WHOI, USA). The proposal was developed from discussions at the InterRidge Theoretical Institute (IRTI) on Biogeochemical Interaction at Deep-Sea Vents, held in September 2007.
