Upcoming Impact Cratering Workshop/Fieldrip Norway 2010

Workshop and Field Excursion: Damage to Target Rocks During Impact Cratering

http://folk.uio.no/stephaw/cdws.html


Damage to target rocks during impact cratering
Oslo, Norway
Workshop: June 6-8, 2010
Field Trip: June 9-11, 2010

------------------------------------------------------------------------
MEETING LOCATION AND DATE
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The workshop will be arranged at PGP (Physics of Geological Processes)
http://lux.uio.no/pgp/
http://www.uio.no/
,
June 6-8, 2010, with an immediately following excursion to the Ritland
impact structure, southwestern Norway on June 9-11.


Please, be aware that June is high touristic season in Oslo, and it can
be difficult to find (inexpensive) housing. Make your bookings as early
as possible!

------------------------------------------------------------------------
SCIENTIFIC FORMAT
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The workshop will be organized in plenary sessions of presentations that
focus on:

1. Distribution and characterisation of rock damage measured in specific
craters

2. The process of rock failure itself - how do current models
incorporate rock mechanics and what are the pros and cons of different
methods?

3. Meso-/micro scale damage e.g. shatter cones (length scale meters),
planar deformation features, broken crystals, and pore space destruction

4. Local scale - fracture-fragmentation zone near crater-origin

5. Regional scale - the influence of pre-existing fault patterns on the
crater shape

6. The relationship between fragmentation of rocks in the vicinity of
impact craters and their observed geophysical signature.


We intend to have oral presentations and workshop/discussion sessions.
The detailed program will be announced later.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
------------------------------------------------------------------------

We invite you to send your contribution in LPSC-style
http://www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2010/lpsc2010.templates.html

abstract format. Please send your abstracts and the registration form
wscdregistration.doc to Stephanie.Werner(a)fys.uio.no . There are no
fees for the workshop itself.



*ABSTRACT DEADLINE is April 15th*

------------------------------------------------------------------------
FIELD EXCURSION TO THE RITLAND CRATER
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The excursion will take three days (June 9-11, 2010). This event
includes one day travel from Oslo to Hjelmeland near Stavanger (9th of
June), one full day in the field (10^th of June) and the return to Oslo
via Stavanger on the 11th of June. The costs for the excursion will be
about 3300 NOK, depending on the number of participants. The amount
should cover transportation, two nights in a hotel (breakfast included),
two dinners and a field-lunch on June 10th .
