25 years of ODP/IODP Bremen Core Repository (BCR)

Mar 12, 2019, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Haus der Wissenschaft, Bremen

25 years ago the Bremen Core Repository (BCR) of the (International) Ocean-Drilling Program was founded. After an initial period in the port of Bremen, the BCR is now based on the campus of the University of Bremen at MARUM. As one of the three worldwide IODP core repositories, the BCR is a central location for the international IODP community. On the occasion of the anniversary an international symposium on March 12, 2019 will be organized for invited experts in the ›Haus der Wissenschaft‹ in Bremen.
