About the blog

What is SeaRocks Blog? Most simply it is a blog about the ocean crust! At SeaRocks we are very interested in how the ocean crust forms, how it changes, and what that means to our planet. Here, you can see all kinds of posts about our research, our lives as early career scientists, and the fun things that we get to do as geoscientists.

Beyond our enthusiasm for ocean rocks, we, the PhD students and Post-docs who contribute to this blog, are all linked by being members of a research and training project funded by the European Commission. The 14 of us are members of the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network ABYSS which aims at training a new generation of researchers and brings together 10 institutions and 4 private sector partners in 6 European countries. Within this network, we are collectively studying actual “sea rocks” to better understand the processes that occur within the ocean crust. For more information about individual authors visit our Who we are page. There you will find out more about where we are from, where we are now, and what we study.

Many of our projects involve field work, and all of them require travel to other institutions, so stay tuned to hear about where we are now, and where we will be going!
