ICDP at EGU 2016

The EGU 2016 general assembly was held April 17-22, 2016 in Vienna, Austria.

The joint IODP/ECORD-ICDP booth (#55-58) was again a great success. It served as meeting point for the scientific drilling community and attracted interested scientists with e.g. live core-scanning, core displaying with CORELYZER, and videos. 

The ICDP-IODP/ECORD Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, April 19, 7-8 pm, was attended by about 250 scientists and engineers with an interest in Scientific Drilling. Gilbert Camoin (ECORD/IODP) and Brian Horsfiled (ICDP) gave short overviews on rencent achievements in the respective programms. Michelle Harris reported on the IODP Expedition 357 Atlantis Massif and on the upcoming ICDP Oman Ophiolite Drilling campaign.

The joint IODP-ICDP Session SSP1.3 Achievements and perspectives in scientific ocean and continental drilling received 44 contributions and was held on Thursday (orals: Thursday morning, posters: Thursday afternoon).
