The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD) is the organisation that facilitates European (and Canadian) involvement in the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), the world’s largest and longest running Earth Science collaborative research programme (involving scientists from 23 nations around the world). IODP explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor sub-seafloor environments.
The ECORD Distinguished Lecturer programme provides opportunities for leading scientists to visit universities to share their exciting research with new audiences. This year the University is delighted to host ECORD Distinguished Lecturer Professor Marguerite Godard from Université Montpellier 2, France.
Professor Godard is a world-leading researcher who investigates fundamental processes happening in the Earth’s mantle using geochemistry as a tool. In this talk, she will describe how scientific ocean drilling provides a window into the deep Earth, allowing geoscientists to understand how magma is generated in the mantle and then migrates upwards to eventually form the oceanic crust.
This talk is open to all with seating available on a first come, first served basis. No booking is required.
