ABOVE (Aerial-based Observations of Volcanic Emissions
DCO ABOVE (Aerial-based Observations of Volcanic Emissions) is the second part of a DCO-funded project to explore volcanic emissions in Papua New Guinea using cutting-edge drone technologies. Led by Emma Liu of the University of Cambridge, UK, the expedition will see an international team of scientists collaborating with local volcano observatories to investigate these strongly degassing volcanoes.
Third DCO Early Career Scientist Workshop, Etna, 2017
The Deep Carbon Observatory, in collaboration with the Department of Earth Sciences of Sapienza University (Rome), hosted its third Early Career Scientist Workshop in Nicolosi (Etna), Italy, 28 August-2 September 2017. This workshop brought together the next generation of researchers active in deep carbon studies from around the world. Building on the success of the first and second DCO Early Career Scientist Workshops, this third workshop (~60 scientists) of early career researchers fostered collaboration and community within the ever expanding DCO Science Network.

Biology Meets Subduction
"Biology Meets Subduction" was a 12-day field-sampling program in Costa Rica's volcanic arc, followed by integrated sample analysis and modeling. DCO Early Career Scientists comprise the research team that is investigating novel connections between microbiology, volcanic systems, and the cycling of living and dead carbon as Earth’s plates move and subduct past each other.
