“Solid Earth and Climate: Dynamic Interactions with the Hydrosphere and Carbosphere”
Application Deadline: 1 February 2015
Organizers: Meredith Nettles, Terry Plank, Louis Derry, and Jeff Freymuller.
The purpose of CIDER 2015 is to bring together scientists from different disciplines to better understand how interactions between the mantle and the major surface reservoirs of water and carbon influence sea level, icesheet dynamics, the volume of the ocean, magma production, the volcanic flux of CO2 to the atmosphere, and the loss of carbon via subduction into the mantle. CIDER 2015 will involved cross-disiplinary discussions among geophysicists, geochemists, geodyamicists, and paleoclimate scientists. The program includes a 4 week tutorial program for about 35 advanced graduate students and post-docs (5-31 July 2015), while more senior scientists are also welcome at any point in the program.
A Deep Carbon Observatory Thematic Institute, “Carbon from the Mantle to the Surface,” will be held in conjunction with the CIDER program on 1-3 July 2015.
The tutorial program will include lectures and hands-on tutorials. Concurrently, junior and senior scientists will engage in collaborative multidisciplinary research ventures defined on site.
This CIDER Summer program will be held at the University of California, Berkeley. It is supported by the NSF/FESD program. Applications are invited for both senior and junior participants at http://www.deep-earth.org/summer15.shtml
