Do you have questions about how deep biosphere/microbiology sampling is part of the international scientific ocean drilling program (the International Ocean Discovery Program, IODP), and how subseafloor samples are collected? Have you wondered how you can get more involved with IODP, or how proposals for drilling are handled? Are you curious about the future of IODP beyond the current program, and how deep biosphere/microbiology science can be part of that future?
This Virtual Meeting Series event will feature a panel of deep biosphere scientists highlighting these topics and answering your questions. Everyone is welcome to join – from experienced IODP users to those who have never been involved with IODP. Panelists will include Jennifer Biddle (University of Delaware), Stephanie Carr (Hartwick College), Steven D’Hondt (University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography), Jessica Labonté (Texas A&M University Galveston), Beth Orcutt (Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences), and Jason Sylvan (Texas A&M University).
Register in advance for the meeting on September 3, 2021.
