The focus of this meeting is the Mediterranean-Atlantic gateway system, both today and in the past and a major aim is to start developing proposals for IODP and/or ICDP drilling that recovers a complete record of Miocene Mediterranean-Atlantic exchange. The meeting includes a half day fieldtrip to classic exposures of Morocco’s Miocene Mediterranean-Atlantic gateway sediments. Contributions from scientists working on all aspects of marine gateways, both modern and ancient are most welcome. Read more
