UKIODP has sponsored participants in the following recent meetings/workshops:
- 2012 UK-IODP Student Conference
Approximately 50 students, early-career scientists, and mentoring senior scientists participated in this 3 day event of research presentations and workshop actvities. One highlight was a day long exercise where student groups put together and presented a mock IODP drilling proposal. This turned out to be an excellent tool in which to introduce many aspects of the programme, from working with an inter-disciplinary group of scientists to coming up with complimentary scientific objectives, to planning a logistically practical operation.
- 2012 UK-IODP General Conference
A day of excellent talks covering the diversity of research conducted within IODP, a poster session, and discussions about the future of the international and domestic programs.
- IODP/ICDP Workshop geological carbon capture and storage, Muscat, Oman
- The 2010 PALSEA workshop ((PALeo-constraints on SEA-level rise -
a PAGES/IMAGES working group) (Workshop report).
- UKIODP Forcings and Feedbacks Workshop (following from 2008 Grant Round) *Workshop report coming soon.

UKIODP University Visits
The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) officially
began in October 2003 and is made up of an international
partnership of countries with the aim to provide a better
understanding of plate tectonic processes, the Earth's
crustal structure and composition, environmental conditions
and life in ancient oceans, and climate change. Dayton Dove, the Science Coordinator for the UK membership
to the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, will come to
talk about research and funding opportunities of IODP.
These include cruise participation on the three ocean
drilling platforms and NERC IODP Research awards. To email
