Summary

This workshop that will be held in Montpellier, France (22-24 January 2019) aims at developing an amphibious ICDP/IODP proposal for drilling the onshore peridotites of New Caledonia and their offshore extension. It will engage senior and young scientists specialists in marine geology, tectonics, (bio-)geochemistry, and borehole (hydro-)geophysics with colleagues from georesource industries to facilitate synergies. It will focus on (1) the mechanisms driving the peridotite obduction and carbonate platform formation and (2) the present-day serpentinization and weathering processes and their impacts on mineral resources, renewable energies and life.
