FeMO Seagoing Expeditions
Loihi Seamount is an active volcano in the mid-Pacific ocean where hydrothermal waters with high concentrations of reduced iron exit the oceanic crust. Here iron-oxidizing bacteria carpet the rock surfaces and form massive rust coatings. The focus of the Fe-Oxidizing Microbial Observatory (FeMO) is to understand what the iron-oxidizing bacteria in this environment are, how fast they form these deposits, how they do it biochemically, and how they affect ocean chemistry and ecosystem function.

NSF-sponsored GK12 Project
Scripps Classroom Connection (SCC)

The Scripps Classroom Connection (SCC) aims to systematically and simultaneously improve communication skills of Earth Science graduate students and K-12 education in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD). These goals are relevant because Earth Science literacy is fundamental to the success of our society that must practice much more effective stewardship of our very fragile planet and that needs to understand how planet Earth works as an integrated chemical, physical and biological system.

  • The Magnetics Information Consortium (MagIC) continues its global seminar series in 2015. The seminar will be held on select Mondays each month at 8am Pacific Time. This early start in Pacific Time will allow those in Europe to join at a reasonable hour. In the seminar a presentation of a recent paper will be given using Adobe Connect. Ample time will be given to discussion during and after the presentation. Each seminar will have a presenter as coordinated by the MagIC team. Please visit the MagIC seminar website for the seminar schedule, recordings of past seminars, and other details.

  • The Magnetics Information Consortium (MagIC) is sponsoring a global seminar series starting October 15, 2013. This seminar will occur on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at 4pm PST (8am Beijing). This is a beta phase of the seminar series and when bugs are worked out we plan to add other dates for the convenience of our colleagues in other timezones. In the seminar a discussion of a recent paper will be held using Adobe Connect. Each seminar will have a discussion leader as coordinated by the MagIC team. Please visit the MagIC seminar website for the seminar schedule and other details.


  • The Rurutu Hotspot RR1310 Expedition plans to dredge 20 seamounts in the Tuvalu-Samoa area of the western Pacific. We aim to address the hypothesis stating that the Rurutu hotspot in French Polynesia formed a long-lived seamount trail that extends at least into the Tuvalu area and contains a pronounced bend synchronous with the Hawaii-Emperor bend. The goals of the project will be accomplished by utilizing geochemical fingerprinting combined with absolute age dating. Visit the Expedition Website ...
