Bringing together all science disciplines involved in seamount research to explore innovative ways to build a seamount cyberinfrastructure.
Enduring Resources for Earth Science Education

Promoting, creating and publishing of enduring resources for Earth science education in a collaboration between school teachers and Earth scientists.

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.

  • Follow the NBP1808 Expedition as we carry out 40Ar/39Ar dating and collect geochemical data on the lava flows that formed the Rio Grande Rise (RGR) structure roughly between 80 and 40 million years ago. We will use this data to refine plate motion models of the South American and African tectonic plates, while improving our understanding of conjugate intra-plate volcanic systems that form over long geological periods on two separating plates.

  • We invite you to attend the 2017 MagIC Workshop from the 24th to the 27th of January, 2017 hosted at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California. Registration is now open. Two full days of talks will be followed by a day of working with the MagIC database and a one day hackathon of the PmagPy paleomagnetic software suite. Feel free to come for just the talks or stay for the whole event. Present your own research at a poster session that will be held on the evening of the 24th. Discounted hotel reservations are available. See the workshop website for the speaker schedule and all the other details. Students and others who wish to learn how to upload data into the MagIC database are especially encouraged to attend the workshop.

  • Follow the G-056 Expedition as we travel to McMurdo Station in Antarctica to go on daily excursions to collect samples from 132 ancient lava flows of the Mount Erebus volcanic province that recorded the magnetic field intensity during their cooling from about 1000 ¿C to near-freezing. The Erebus volcanic province was formed over the last 5 million years and determining the paleointensity over that time will help us understand the processes that cause the magnetic field to change.

  • 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.
