Europe cores in EUROCORES: Ocean drilling in EuroMARC
Date:11/24/2008

science sampling party like in Bremen. "Everyone is sampling for everybody. So it's really a collaborative activity with everyone having a different task" explained Camoin. The scientists receive numerous sampling requests from their community and have to divide their labour. If the cores are sampled in different labs, the results are usually shared in order to avoid duplicate sampling.

Marine coring and drilling is a challenging endeavour. Needless to say that a good recovery of the cores is essential sometimes the sediment is lost when pulling out the core and the so-called core-catcher at the bottom doesn't shut. The prevailing weather conditions are another crucial success factor: storms, for example, make operations nearly impossible. "Depending on the availability of the ship, you might enter into hurricane season and might lose a week of operations" elaborated Schneider. At times, failures of cruises are more man-made and can reach from difficulties in receiving territorial approval before strict deadlines via rescheduling of slots on the coring ships to failed orders of indispensable drilling equipment. All these factors can seriously jeopardise not only the cruise itself, but also entire research projects. Especially newly hired PhD students are highly dependant on the material retrieved from the sea, as they need to obtain data in time.

EuroMARC is a programme in a truly collaborative fashion. "The great benefit for us is to work in a real network, to exchange data, but also to intercalibrate the results among the labs." said Camoin. "EuroMARC is multidisciplinary, multilab, and this is how science works now and it's very enriching for us to collaborate with other people." added Kissel. First fantastic results have been obtained, such as the discovery of the first ever black smoker field at an ultra-slow spreading ridge by the H2DEEP project headed by Rolf-Birger Pedersen from the University of Bergen. Furthermore, new IODP proposals
