Dr. Clinton Foster, Chief Scientist at Geoscience Australia (GA) and Adjunct Professor of School of Earth and Environment, The University of Western Australia, and Dr. Wataru Azuma, Associate Executive Director of Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), jointly announce a science meeting to be held at the University of Sydney to discuss details of the seven science themes in the IODP pre-proposal 871 (Lord Howe Rise Crsutal Evolution), which was jointly initiated by GA and JAMSTEC and submitted in September 2014. The purpose of the meeting is to look at the science proposals and determine the best techniques to test hypotheses. Theme convenors will invite relevant speakers. Equally important will be the discussion of the capabilities of DV Chikyu to deliver the science, with JAMSTEC specialists attending. Data handling for each of the science specialities will also be discussed and determined. A second announcement is planned in late January 2015. Please inform interested colleagues of the meeting.
