Hydrothermal Circulation and Seawater Chemistry: What’s the chicken and what’s the egg?
Agros, Cyprus | 15-19 May 2023
The following list shows the confirmed invited speakers for the conference.
Bill Seyfried, University of Minnesota, USA
Roz Coggon, University of Southampton, UK
Jessica Fitzsimmons, Texas A&M University, USA
Lee Kump, Penn State University, USA
Ben Tutolo, University of Calgary, Canada
Xin Zhang, Institute of Oceanology, Qingdao, China
Danielle Santiago-Ramos, Rutgers University, USA
Sambudha Misra, Indian Institute of Science, India
Rachel Lauer, University of Calgary, Canada
Mebrahtu Weldeghebriel, Princeton University, USA

The meeting will alternate between traditional conference style talks, discussion and posters (Mon, Wed, Fri) and field trips (Tue, Thur). The five sessions will start with invited overview talks and comprise a mix of invited and contributed talks with ample time for discussion. All participants will have the opportunity to present a poster.
- Session 1: What processes and boundary conditions control high-temperature (on-axis) hydrothermal fluxes?
- Session 2: What processes and boundary conditions control low-temperature (off-axis) hydrothermal fluxes?
- Session 3: How and why do hydrothermal fluxes vary in space and time in the modern and recent ocean?
- Session 4: How and why did hydrothermal fluxes vary over the Phanerozoic under different boundary conditions?
- Session 5: What might control hydrothermal fluxes on habitable exoplanets and the early Earth?
Field trips on Tuesday and Thursday will visit the Troodos ophiolite to observe the traces of hydrothermal processes in this piece of Cretaceous ocean crust. We will visit outcrops from the paleo-seafloor to the mantle. The Troodos ophiolite has the best preserved section of upper oceanic crust of any ophiolite in the word and is recognized as a UNSECO world heritage site - the Troodos Geopark.
Please ensure you have sturdy shoes (not sandals) as we will walk on rough ground in places. The weather in May in Cyprus is typically very pleasant, but we will visit one outcrop at almost 2000 m elevation where it is likely to be cold. The weather can be very warm at lower elevations and it is important to have a sunhat, sun cream, long-sleeved shirt and a large water bottle (or two). It can also be very wet on a rainy day (ensure you have a rain jacket). There are no toilets on the bus but we have scheduled washroom breaks. Boxed lunches will be provided by the Rodon.
