Project Acronym: FACET| State: Workshop Held

ICDP Workshop FACET:

27. Aug.- 2. Sept. 2023 in Otago, New Zealand

An ICDP workshop to discuss the potential of long sedimentary archives from mid-latitude fjords in Aotearoa New Zealand

The FACET team invites interested scientists to an ICDP scientific drilling workshop in Doubtful Sound and at the University of Otago to collaboratively develop priorities for long coring in the NZ fiords and strategies for selecting coring sites to address those priorities. In this workshop, we will present site survey data and discuss potential drilling sites to evaluate the timing of deglaciation, sea level incursion, fjord circulation, climate change, carbon burial rates, earthquake frequency and other relevant topics.
