Training on Demand

Apart from the annual training courses, Principal Investigators of running or forthcoming ICDP drilling projects are encouraged to propose new Training Courses. The course agenda should be project-related. The special themes and the appropriate levels of the courses can be suited for each ICDP project and its science team.

Specific Training

In order to support proponents, engineers, and scientists for their specific tasks within their drilling project we provide a number of training courses or workshops. For ICDP projects, we recommend to apply for it already in the workshop proposal and at least in the full proposal.

Drill Core Scanning & Logging

Scan images and logging data from the Dead See drilling project

Imaging and Logging of drilled cores are important steps in the workflow of initial data acquisition and documentation. Beside regular photography, the cores should be scanned using line scanning devices for digital, nearly undistorted, full color, and high resolution images. A multi sensor core logger is very useful for measuring petrophysical properties of the core sections even within a liner. Both tasks should be carefully synchronized to achieve best throughput and qualities.
