This workshop provides a forum for participants to discuss interdisciplinary opportunities that would be enabled by extending power and communications/data transmission from the NEPTUNE network to CORKs at IODP 1027 deep-sea site on the eastern flank of the Juan de Fuca Ridge - a remote and dynamic ocean environment. Discussions will include potential instrumentation, technological and logistical issues, funding, proposed process, and timeline.
The Cork Connections workshop will be held at The W Hotel San Francisco, California.
