That dip is 1. the angle between an inclined bedding plane in a rock sequence and the horizontal. the dip value includes an inclination and a direction and the two components are generally quoted in this order and in the format l0 ene or 10 towards 025 magnetic (etc.). the dip direction is down the slope. true dip is the maximum dip value of a given bedding plane; other, lesser values, obliquely down the same bedding plane, referred to as apparent dips. the direction at right-angles to the true dip, where the dip value is zero, is known as the strike [9]. 2. maximum plunge of sloping planar features (e.g bedding, fractures) within a geological formation measured perpendicularly to the strike of the features. see also strike; hade.?

First International Planetary Cave Research Workshop

Dates: From 25 Oct, 2011 till 28 Oct, 2011
Location: NCKRI Headquarters, Carlsbad, New Mexico, USA

 

The First International Planetary Cave Research Workshop is a follow-up to the 2008 Lava Tube Workshop held in Grant, New Mexico, which brought together researchers with interests in lava tubes from diverse backgrounds, ranging from image analysis to modeling to robotics.

This workshop is the first in a continuing series of meetings that are intended to promote the exchange of knowledge and ideas between planetary and terrestrial scientists interested in cave exploration and research across the solar system. In recognition of the broad scope, interdisciplinary nature, and strong international interest in this topic, the participation of any interested scientist with relevant theoretical, experimental, or field experience is strongly encouraged.

The workshop will incorporate oral and poster presentations as well as extended discussion dispersed around a one-day field trip to local caves. The workshop will bring together researchers with interests in planetary caves from diverse backgrounds in image analysis, modeling, and terrestrial analog studies. A small group setting will facilitate intensive discussion of problems and issues in an attempt to identify the most promising approaches to understanding these cave systems and to develop a collaborative interdisciplinary research agenda.  

Abstract deadline Aug. 9, 2011.  Early registration deadline Sept. 23, Sept 24-Oct 11, regular registration.  NO ONSITE REGISTRATION WILL BE ACCEPTED.
