ECORD Summer School 2020: Downhole Logging for IODP Science

Returning to the University of Leicester for the fifth year, the ECORD Summer School: Downhole Logging for IODP Science focuses on downhole-logging within the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and the applications of downhole measurements in various geoscientific fields, including paleoclimatology, sedimentology, and broader geological and ecological processes.

The Summer School is a 1-week long CPD-accredited course offering 36 hours of training in the core principles of petrophysics and downhole-logging, from data collection to interpretation.

The School will be hosted at the University of Leicester (UK)
and will run from the 4th July to the 10th of July 2020.

The course’s instructors are international experts from the IODP community, combining in class room learning with hands-on activities and group exercises. The course also includes a mid-week field trip to a local wireline logging company and the British Geological Survey (BGS) core store. The Summer School will wrap-up with fundamental training on industry standard software package Schlumberger’s Techlog, a software package also used on all IODP platforms

The course fee is expected to be ~£180 (GBP) and is only payable upon awarding of an offer of acceptance. Applications are now open and will remain open until the 21 February 2020 [new deadline].
