IODP Program Member Offices (PMOs) are calling for science party
applicants for two USIO expeditions: the Canterbury Basin Sea Level
and the Wilkes Land Paleoceanography Expeditions. Scheduled for mid-
November 2008 to mid-Jan. 2009, the Canterbury Basin Sea Level
Expedition is based on IODP Proposal 600-Full. It aims to understand
the relative importance of global sea level (eustasy) versus local
tectonic and sedimentary processes in controlling continental-margin
deposits since the Oligocene.
The Wilkes Land Paleoceanography Expedition, scheduled for Jan.-March
2009 is based on IODP Proposals 482-Full3 and 638-APL2. This
expedition will investigate the long-term record of Antarctic
glaciation and its relationship with global sea level, paleoclimate
and paleoceanographic changes.
Summaries of the planned drilling programs and the current expedition
schedule are available at http://iodp.tamu.edu/scienceops. Expedition
schedules are dependent on the completion date of the conversion of
the drillship JOIDES Resolution and subject to change. Prospective
participants should apply to their respective IODP Program Member
Office (www.iodp.org/program-member-offices) by Nov. 30, 2007. PMOs
will forward applications of nominated scientists to the United
States Implementing Organization (USIO), which is responsible for
staffing these expeditions. The USIO will work closely with the co-
chief scientists and PMOs to maximize scientific output while
balancing member country staffing quotas.
