Day 1 – Symposium: Carbon and life in deep sediments in the Arctic

09:15 Welcome and Introduction by Steffen L Jørgensen

10:00 Rolf Birger Pedersen

Title: “Southern Knipovich Ridge and geological history of the Norwegian-Greenland Sea”

10:45 Coffee/Tea

11:00 Vera Schlindwein

Title: “Seismicity and lithosphere structure at slow/ultraslow ridges”

12:00 Lunch break

13:30 Wolfgang Bach

Title: “The role of water-rock reactions for cycling of buried carbon”

14:15 Hans Røy

Title: “Carbon cycling by subseafloor microbial life”

15:00 Coffe/Tea

opening mid-ocean ridges”

16:15 Andreia Faverola

19:00 Dinner

Day 2 – Overarching Research Questions and Site Selection

09:15 Javier Escartin

Title: “Structural evolution of ultra-slow spreading ridges

09:45 Beth Orcutt

Title: “Ups and downs on CORKs”

11:15 Group discussions related to:

  • Key questions about deep carbon cycling can be tackled by drilling the SKR?
  • First-order sub-seafloor microbial life questions we attempt to solve?
  • Other critical knowledge gaps (tectonics, climate, geochemical fluxes, etc.)can be addressed?
  • Best drill sites for accomplishing these science goals?
  • Additional site survey data for the potential drilling sites are required for an

IODP proposal?

12:15 Lunch break

13:30 Continued group discussions

16:00 presentation by the different groups

19:00 Dinner

 

Day 3 – Strategies and Implementation

09:30 Final discussion, proposal outline and delegations of tasks
