EGU 2016 Union Symposium and Sessions of Special Interest to DCO

DCO, the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, and several European Geoscience Union divisions are jointly organizing a Union Symposium on Deep Geofluids at the 2016 European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria.

The Deep Carbon Observatory, the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP), and several European Geoscience Union (EGU) divisions are jointly organizing a Union Symposium on Deep Geofluids at the 2016 European Geosciences Union General Assembly in Vienna, Austria from 17-22 April 2016. The Union Symposium will feature presentations by DCO collaborators Peter Kelemen (Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, USA) and Chris Ballentine (University of Oxford, UK).  Kelemen will speak about the subduction zone carbon cycle and Ballentine will discuss deep ancient fluids in the continental crust and their impact on near-surface economic, environmental and biological systems. The symposium, which will take place on Thursday, 21 April at 15:30, will be co-chaired by Brian Horsfield, Executive Director, ICDP; Craig Schiffries, Director, DCO; and Christopher Juhlin, President, EGU Division on Energy, Resources and the Environment.

A film co-sponsored by DCO will be featured in the EGU GeoCinema. The film, created by Sébastien Turay of Sur une Île productions, highlights DCO scientist Magali Ader (Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris, France) and her colleagues as they conduct field research at the Dziani Dzaha crater lake located on Petite Terre, one of the Mayotte islands between Madagascar and Mozambique. View the documentary at EGU 2016 on Tuesday, 19 April at 14:00 and Thursday, 21 April 2016 at 16:30, or on the DCO website here.
