Expedition 396 – Mid-Norwegian Continental Margin Magmatism
6 August to 6 October 2021
Mid-Norwegian Continental Margin Magmatism Expedition 396 is a scientific ocean drilling project that seeks to understand the nature, cause and climate implications of excess magmatism during the northeast Atlantic continental breakup.
This expedition will address five primary objectives:
The expedition will also address two important secondary objectives: (1) early Eocene hot-house and fresh water incursions into the Atlantic, and (2) carbon capture and storage in basalt provinces.
