Present your IODP-related research and find out more about up-coming expeditions as well as the development of the new 2050 Science Framework
Professor Tina van De Flierdt (Imperial College)
Dr Ake Fagereng (Cardiff University)
Dr Roz Coggon (University of Southampton)
The digital meeting will be spread over three sessions:
Talks and posters about ICDP and joint IODP-ICDP science are very welcome. PhD Students and Early Career Researchers are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts. Prizes will be available for students hosted at UK research institutions

Our first talk will be the Role of silicon in the development of complex crystal shapes in coccolithophores by Gerald Langer. The development of calcification by the coccolithophores had a profound impact on ocean carbon cycling, but the evolutionary steps leading to the formation of these complex biomineralized structures are not clear. Advanced microscopic studies help to understand how these tiny microorganisms calcify and how some coccolithophore species recruit silicon for crystal morphogenesis.
