The Brazilian Equatorial Margin – BEM II
Uncovering the Cenozoic paleoceanography and the fracture zone tectonic activity
The BEM community invites you to integrate and develop the two successful IODP Pre-Proposals targeting the Brazilian Equatorial Margin into full proposals.
The two initiatives focus on understanding the role of transform faults/fracture zones in the evolution of continental margins, and unraveling the Cenozoic paleoclimate and paleoceanographic record in the inter-tropical latitudes. Promoting drilling proposals offshore BEM is a timely fit with the JR timeline for drilling in the South Atlantic post-2018 and offers the possibility to broaden the spectrum of big science questions to address in the area.
We intend to engage new contributors in all aspects of the BEM initiatives: paleoceanography, marine geology, tectonics, climate change, geophysics, volcanology, sedimentology, petrology and geochemistry.
The workshop takes place at the IO-USP research base in Ubatuba.
Registration is now closed.
