Scientific Drilling Short Course

by Hokkaido University Summer Institute, applications now open

Postgraduate students and early career scientists including industry are kindly invited to apply. The course comprises three modules officially adopted by Hokkaido University’s Summer Institute, as follows:

  1. 3D Earth Structure - from the field to the drillcore
  2. Multiscale geophysical characterisation of Earth materials, and application to scientific drilling
  3. Interpretation of past Earth environments from core samples

Dates: 18 June - 2 July: Compulsory course with some fieldwork, lectures, and core workshop, 2 July - 7 July 2018: Optional field trip around Hokkaido. To apply for each course, simply click the "Application" tab at the page, where students can see the "Application Process”. Applications must be submitted online between 1 and 28 February 2018.

More info: Virginia Toy and Toru Takeshita

The three courses uniquely combine lectures, practical exercises in a workshop where we will examine drillcore on loan from IODP, and fieldwork. The field component is critical as it provides a large-scale/more continuous context for the observations participants may make when logging drilled cores in future. International participants shall enroll in all three courses, which can be officially completed in 2 weeks, but with the option to stay in Japan for a field trip around Hokkaido in the following week.
