MARCANTopographically-Driven Meteoric Groundwater – An Important Geomorphic Agent

MARCAN_L

MARCAN is a 5 year research project that investigates the role of offshore groundwater in the geomorphic evolution of continental margins.  MARCAN is a Starting Grant project supported by the European Research Council.

SCARP – Canyon and landslide processes of non-tropical carbonate escarpments

SCARP is a 4-year project funded by a Marie Curie Career Integration Grant. The aim of SCARP is to characterise the morphology of non-tropical carbonate escarpments in unprecedented detail, investigate the nature and dynamics of canyon and landslide processes responsible for their morphology, and understand their role in sediment export and non-tropical carbonate margin development. SCARP entails the integration of diverse geophysical and sedimentological datasets acquired from the Malta Escarpment (Mediterranean Sea) during a number of research cruises, and their analyses using innovative data processing, numerical and statistical techniques, and state-of-the-art sedimentological, geotechnical, and geochoronological methods.

EMODnet – European Marine Observation and Data Network

EMODnet_L 

The European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) consists of more than 100 organisations assembling marine data, products and metadata to make these fragmented resources more available to public and private users relying on quality-assured,   standardised and harmonised marine data. The Marine Geology and Seafloor Surveying group contributes data from the central Mediterranean to the Bathymetry and Geology groups.

S4SLIDE – Assessing Geohazards, Environmental Implications and Economic Significance of Submarine Landslides across the World’s Continental Margins

S4SLIDE 

The project Assessing Geohazards, Environmental Implications and Economic Significance of Submarine Landslides across the World’s Continental Margins (S4SLIDE) focuses on facilitating the interaction of scientists, engineers, industry and government representatives, and other parties interested in submarine mass movements and their geohazard potential. This project is part of an initiative by the International Geoscience Programme (IGCP) and UNESCO.

MEDSALT – Uncovering the Mediterranean salt giant

MedSalt_L

MEDSALT is a COST Action that aims to address the causes, timing, emplacement mechanisms, and consequences at local and planetary scale of the largest and most recent 'salt giant' on Earth: The late Miocene (Messinian) salt layer in the Mediterranean basin.

INCISE – International network for submarine canyon investigation and scientific exchange

INCISE_L 

INCISE Exchange is an initiative that aims to bring together scientists working on all aspects of submarine canyon research, and to stimulate discussions across disciplines.

MIGRATE – Marine gas hydrate: An indigenous resource of natural gas for Europe

MIGRATE is a COST Action that integrates the expertise of a large number of European research groups and industrial players to promote the development of multidisciplinary knowledge on the potential of gas hydrates as energy resource.
