ICDP/DCO International Workshop on Multi-Well Deep Underground Laboratory in Eastern China

2016-07-03 - 08:00 - 2016-07-08
Changchun, PR China

The objective of this ICDP-DCO-MLR-IUGS-CGS sponsored workshop is to develop a full proposal to be submitted to ICDP to implement a deep multi-well (1000 - 6000 m) underground laboratory (MW-DUL) using the large number of existing boreholes in the Songliao Basin, NE China. The objectives of MW-DUL are 1) detection and exploration of the deep biosphere; 2) geological CO2 sequestration; 3) seismic and volcanic activity monitoring; 4) sharing well-characterized samples containing possible abiotic methane or other hydrocarbons that can be analyzed in multiple laboratories; 5) sharing data on samples containing abiotic hydrocarbons; and 6) developing new international scientific collaborations. Because an extensive infrastructure exists within and around the Songliao Basin, this basin is an ideal site in which to create such a laboratory.
