IDDP is in the process of selecting a new well for deepening as RN-17 is no longer a well of opportunity. Once a new well has been selected, drill cutting samples from that well will be made available to IDDP participants, immediately. Below is a list of samples that were distributed to IDDP participants last year:
Delphine Bosch and Benoit Ildefonse (University of Montpellier) Godard, Boudier, Nicolas, Pezard, Einaudi, Laverne, Mainprice, Gibert
Study of the high temperature alteration processes in the IDDP hole: Geochemical and Petrological constraints and Petrophysical characterization of crustal rocks, with an emphasis on the role of fracturing and alteration on electrical and thermal properties
Core sample from RN19: 2245.28 to 2245.45 m, natural split.
Drill cuttings from RN17: 1550, 1600, 1650, 1700, 2100, 2150, 2200, 2250, 2700, 2800, 2850 m.
Philippe Pezard (University of Montpellier) Celerier, Gautier, Einaudi, Ildefonse, Mainprice, Gibert, Laverne
Porosity, fracturing, alteration, and stress in and near the IDDP hole; an assessment from the combined analysis of downhole geophysical data and shallow regional earthquakes
Electrical resistivity profiles
Natural gamma data
Electrical resistivity and temperature log
Carsten Vahle (Heidelberg) Agnes Kontny
Hot-Spot Related Crustal Magnetization and Magnetic Petrology from Scientific Drillings
Core sample from RN19: 2246.14 to 2246.22 m, natural split
G. Ómar Fridleifsson (Iceland GeoSurvey)
Geology and Hydrothermal alteration in the IDDP drillhole at Reykjanes
Core sample from RN19: 2246.22 to 2246.31 m, split.
Note: all data and materials collected so far from RN17 and RN19 are stored at the Iceland GeoSurvey offices/laboratories in Iceland. Report already available (ISOR-2005/007, 198 p.)
Giovanni Gianelli (NRC, Institute of Geosciences and Earth Resources, Pisa) Tonarini, Ottolini
Evaluation of the larger scale distribution of major, minor, and trace elements compositions accompanying the alteration of oceanic crust
Core sample from RN19: 2246.02 to 2246.14 m, natural split.
Drill cuttings from RN17: 400, 650, 750, 1100, 1450, 1550, 1700, 2150, 2800, 3000.
Julia Frolova (Moscow State University) Ladygin, Sokolov, Genshaft, Saltykovsly, Filimonov, Rychagov
Complex Petrological-Petrophysical Analyses of Rocks in Deep High-Temperature Geothermal Systems
Core sample from RN19: 2246.31 to 2246.42 m, unsplit.
