“ECORD Summer School: Downhole Logging for IODP Science” focuses on the downhole-logging within the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and the applications of downhole measurements in various geoscientific fields, including paleoclimatology, sedimentology, and broader geological and ecological processes.

 The “ECORD Summer School: Downhole Logging for IODP Science” is a 1-week long CPD-accredited course offering 36 hours of training in the core principles of petrophysics and downhole-logging, from data collection to interpretation. The School will be hosted at the University of Leicester (UK) and will run from the 4th July to the 10th of July 2020.

The course’s instructors are international experts from the IODP community, combining in class room learning with hands-on activities and group exercises. The course also includes a local mid-week field trip to a local wireline logging company and the British Geological Survey (BGS) core store. The summer school will wrap-up with fundamental teaching on industry standard software package Schlumberger’s Techlog, which is commonly used on all IODP platforms. 

The course cost is expected to be ~£180 (GBP). Applications will open on the 6th of January 2020 and close on the 14th of February 2020.
