ICDP Workshop "EIFEL" (Bad Honnef, Germany, 04 - 06 Dec 2023)
The ICDP workshop EIFEL aims to bring together scientists at all levels to develop and refine ideas on continental distributed volcanism, its geodynamic relevance, hazards and resource potential. The Eifel region, Germany, hosts hundreds of distributed volcanoes of Quaternary age in an intracontinental setting and is renowned as the type locality of maar volcanism. Drilling in the Laacher See region in the eastern part of the Eifel has the potential to enhance our knowledge on distributed volcanic fields, which are characterized by irregular eruptive recurrence over protracted durations of activity, and specific hazards resulting from high CO2 fluxes from the mantle to the surface. In addition, silicic-carbonatitic magma systems such as the Laacher See are globally recognized as major hosts for critical metal deposits.
The ICDP funded EIFEL workshop will be held as an in-presence event in Bad Honnef during 04-05 December 2023 with an optional field trip to the East Eifel Volcanic Fields on 6th December.
We invite scientists, industry representatives, and students interested in participating in the workshop to apply by 31 August 2023 with a max 1-page statement of interest in the workshop.
