Expedition 341: Alaska Tectonics Climate and Sedimentation
July - September 2012

Application deadline: May 01, 2011


Scientific Aims:

Based on IODP Proposal 686-Full, this expedition will examine the ties between tectonically driven orogenic processes, glacial processes, and north Pacific and global climate by obtaining high-resolution late-Cenozoic sedimentary records across the southern Alaska continental margin. The primary objectives are:

(1) to establish the timing of Neogene advance and retreat phases of the Southern Alaskan Cordilleran Ice Sheet,

(2) to determine the depositional history and glacial record of margin sediments, and

(3) to document the behavior of the geomagnetic field at high temporal resolution to assess processes that control secular variation and geomagnetic polarity reversals.

Application Process: Scientists interested in participating please consult the ESSAC webpage.
Required documents (PDF only) are:

1) a CV

2) a letter of interest including your specific expertise, previous involvement in DSDP/ODP/IODP expeditions, research interest

3) a publication list

Young researchers must additionally provide a letter of support from their host institution including information on the post-cruise science support: How to achieve the proposed scientific objectives in the future (funding scheme and support from host institution).

Please send a copy of your application documents to the IODP-Canada office (
