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:

7th International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals

​The International Symposium on Deep-Sea Corals is the premier meeting for scientists, explorers, managers, policymakers, industry specialists and students to exchange ideas and share knowledge of deep-sea and cold-water corals and their ecosystems. Topics of this meeting will include biodiversity, ecology, evolution, environment, climate, fisheries, sponges, associated fauna, mesophotic ecosystems, anthropogenic impacts, technology, and conservation.​

GeoHab 2019 Annual Conference

The GeoHab 2019 Annual Conference will be held in St. Petersburg (Russia) at A. P. Karpinsky Russian Geological Research Institute from 13 to 17 May 2019.

GEOHAB (Marine Geological and Biological Habitat Mapping) is an international association of marine scientists studying geological, biological, and physical oceanographic processes as indicators of benthic habitats and ecosystems and used as proxies for biological communities and species diversity. The GeoHab Community is linking geology and biology.

EGU 2019 Session: Oceanic and continental transform faults: towards a multi-disciplinary approach

Oceanic and continental transform faults: towards a multi-disciplinary approach
Convener: João C. Duarte
Co-Conveners: Daniele Brunelli, Barry Hanan, Marcia Maia, Mathieu Rodriguez

This session is promoted by the Oceanic Transform Faults working group of InterRidge and aims to present recent results on studies of these large features, especially on the rheology, deformation patterns, rupture processes, fluid circulation and physical properties of transform faults. We welcome observational studies on strike-slip and transform faults, both continental and oceanic, on fracture zones and on transform continental margins
