Call to Sail – EXP 377 Arctic Ocean Paleoceanography 

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is accepting applications for scientific participants on Expedition 377 Arctic Ocean Paleoceanography aboard a Mission Specific Platform (MSP) provided by the ECORD Science Operator. 

To learn more about the scientific objectives of this expedition, life at sea, and how to apply to sail, please join in a web-based seminar on Tuesday, 26 May 2020 at 8:00 am EDT (1:00 pm BST). To participate in the webinar, you need access to the Internet and a computer with a speaker and microphone (optional). To register, click the following link: Exp 377 webinar

The overarching goal of the Expedition 377 is the recovery of a complete stratigraphic sedimentary record on the southern Lomonosov Ridge to meet the highest priority paleoceanographic objective: the continuous long-term Cenozoic climate history of the central Arctic Ocean. The full proposal describing the primary drill sites, as well as up-to-date information, can be found on the Expedition 377 webpage.

Opportunities exist for researchers (including graduate students) in all specialties. While other expertise may be considered, specialists in the following fields are required: sedimentology, micropaleontology, palynology, organic geochemistry, inorganic geochemistry, structural geology, paleomagnetics, microbiology, physical properties, geophysics, stratigraphic correlation, and downhole logging. For the offshore phase of the expedition, we are particularly looking for the following fields: sedimentology, micropaleontology, palynology, organic geochemistry, inorganic geochemistry, microbiology, physical properties, and petrophysics/downhole logging.

 DEADLINE to apply: 19 June 2020
