Chikyu Onboard School

The Chikyu onboard school provides unique opportunity to learn about Chikyu’s scientific research highlights, involving laboratory work along the actual process of core flow. The school includes a Chikyu ship tour, lecture and laboratory practical exercises. Attendees are expected to understand the cutting-edge scientific knowledge contributed by scientific drilling. It is anticipated that participants communicate each other through collaborative works and discussion and will get involved into IODP community.

Team up international training

International is IODP standard. IODP onboard science members have been collaborating with others, who have different countries and backgrounds. Chikyu onboard school adhere this policy and international participants work together for all curriculums.

Hand on learning

The school includes a Chikyu ship tour, lecture and laboratory practical exercises. During the Chikyu ship tour, attendees will learn about riser drilling systems and see the equipment used to achieve this. In the laboratory, attendees will practice logging, following the core workflow (X-CT, multi-sensor core logger Measurement, X-ray florescence, visual core description) and chemical analysis (gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, mass spectrometer etc.).
