The Training Course
As host to one of only three IODP core repositories in the world – the only one in Europe – the MARUM in Bremen is an important hub for marine geoscientists. Taking advantage of this setting, the new ECORD Training Course will provide a “Virtual Drillship Experience” for scientists from academia and industry. This one-week course offers a basic training focusing on the IODP core flow procedures, preparing the participants for participating in an offshore drillship expedition, and instilling them with an appreciation for high standards in all kinds of coring projects. IODP-style lab exercises will form the foundation of the ECORD Training Course following the pattern of the unique “Virtual Ship” approach developed for the Bremen ECORD Summer Schools.
The training course will focus on:
- Introduction to IODP and ECORD
- Virtual shipboard work at BCR/MARUM:
Physical properties - core logging, Sediment visual core description and smear slide analysis, high-resolution linescan imaging and color scanning, Biostratigraphy, Magnetostratigraphy, and Geochemistry
- Introductory seminars to general shipboard activities:
Core splicing and time-series analysis, Downhole Logging Integration, Data Management.
- Interactive session on defining drilling targets and strategies including drilling proposal writing.
Next Course in 2022
at the MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences and the IODP Bremen Core Repository (BCR), University of Bremen, Germany.
… will be early career and established scientists from academia and industry from all over the world who have an interest in scientific drilling and development of professonial skills in core analysis.
