The first German PASADO Postdrilling Workshop took place September 8-10, 2009 in the beautiful rural environment of Hellwege, 40 km east of Bremen. The aim of this meeting was to discuss the strategic mid- to long-term planning to achieve the given scientific goals in the best possible way. Following an appraisal of the current state of the art and of the international collaboration, scientific aims and perspectives were named (1. improving the understanding of processes with monitoring and modelling; 2. improving the chronology; 3. use of new and quantitative proxies; 4. investigation of additional sites) and substantiated by ideas for new projects. Finally, a clear need to improve communication between project scientists became evident. Measures were suggested and will be realised soon. One of these actions is to organise PASADO workshops in conjunction with the AGU Fall Meeting in December 2009, the DFG-IODP/ICDP Colloquium in March 2010 and the EGU Conference in May 2010. The minutes (17 pages in German) are available upon request.
