Outcomes from the ECORD Facility Board Meeting: The EFB discussed and ranked Mission-Specific Platform proposals at its June meeting and made 6 Consensus Statements.
Outcomes from 2016 JR Facility Board Meeting: During its meeting May 17-18, the JRFB scheduled 7 new IODP expeditions to be carried out on the JOIDES Resolution (JR), made adjustments to the JR's long-term ship track, and made 21 Consensus Statements.
IODP Expedition 362 aims to examine the role of incoming sediments and their potential effect on seismogenesis and tsunamogenesis in the North Sumatra seismogenic zone, the location of the destructive 2004 Mw 9.2 Indian Ocean earthquake.
IODP Expedition 364 has successfully completed its drilling phase at the unique Chicxulub impact crater, Mexico, which is the only known terrestrial impact structure directly linked to a mass extinction event (the K-Pg mass extinction 66 million years ago). The final depth was 1335 meters below seafloor. The samples and data obtained will address the formation of large impact craters on Earth and other planets, and the effects of large impacts on Earth's environment and ecology. The Chicxulub impact crater is the best-preserved large impact structure on Earth, and the only terrestrial crater with a global ejecta layer. Alberta article * SoundCloud (5 min) * facebook
