Investigating the Oceanic Life Cycle of Tectonic Plates with Mission-Specific Scientific Drilling
  • Times in GMT | Online

Save event

The MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme is co-funded by ECORD and ICDP and designed to support scientists in developing new and innovative science proposals to meet future challenges in Earth, life and environmental sciences.

This international workshop is aimed at gathering together experts from different disciplines interested in developing Mission Specific Platform (MSP) proposals specific to IODP Strategic Objective 2: Oceanic Life Cycle of Tectonic Plates. The workshop will explore science questions and targets that can be achieved by MSP drilling, and lead to the submission of drilling proposals and follow-up Magellan Plus Workshop proposals on targets identified as showing exceptional promise. 

The workshop will be a hybrid online/in-person format, with an online pre-meeting session in mid-February 2022 in preparation for the in-person event (details of which are currently tbc).

The workshop is organised in two stages (please view the above link for workshop descriptions).


Online information event | Friday 11 February, 13:00-16:00 GMT

This pre-meeting includes a general introduction to the MSP concept, its applicability to scientific drilling in the oceanic lithosphere, reports from past successful MSP expeditions, and an agenda for the subsequent in-person meeting. This pre-meeting will give attendees time to reflect on the potential of MSP drilling to contribute to their respective fields, before the full workshop.

In-person workshop with hybrid online attendance (date, venue and details tbc)

Comprising keynote talks, extended open floor discussions, a thematic working groups meeting and presentation of working group activities.
