Call for proposals to work on core samples from Koyna, India

Application deadline: March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2017

Submission details including proposal format are avaliable at www.moes.gov.in.

Research proposals are invited for international collaboration with MoES/BGRL to carry out relevant investigations on core samples. The proposals must address outstanding science problems of global importance. Researchers are expected to make their own arrangements for collection of samples from BGRL, Karad.

Proposals may be submitted in a single PDF file to: Project Director, Borehole Geophysics Research Laboratory, Ministry of earth Sciences, Karad-Patan Road, Karad 415114, India. E-mail: projectdirector@bgrl@gov.in

The Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India (MoES) has launched scientific deep drilling investigations to understand the mechanisms of Reservoir Triggered Seismicity in the Koyna-Warna region, western India. Under the programme, core drilling has been caried out to depth of 1522 m, passing through Deccan flood basalt and underlying basement granitoids for the first time in the region. The cores constitute a valuable archive, offering unique opportunitied for investigating Deccan volcanism and other geoscience problems. A core repository is under development at the Ministry's research facilitity, the Borehole Geophysics Research Laboratory (BGRL) located at Karad.
