International workshop DriMMLOC at Tongji University in Shanghai (China)

An international workshop DriMMLOC “Drilling the Mantle, Moho and Lower Oceanic Crust” will be held on 7-9 May 2020 at Tongji University in Shanghai (China). The workshop will present the latest developments across a broad spectrum of earth science disciplines, including tectonics, geophysics, petrology and biogeochemistry to address the main question of how do the styles of formation of the oceanic lithosphere vary with spreading rate and magma supply, and how do these influence hydrothermal alteration and microbial activity.

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.
