The 4th ZIP newsletter is dedicated to Evguenii Burov, who passed away on the way to the ZIP Consolidator field trip in Chile on the 9th of October 2015. An obituary on the first page shall honour his life and work. May you rest in peace, Evguenii!
The newsletter covers two major ZIP events in 2015:
1. The ZIP Starter I cruise on geophysical data acquisition in the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Sea in July 2015. Fellows accompanied the team of the CSIC (Barcelona) for approximately 10 days during their geophysical data acquisition campaign onboard the “B/O Sarmiento de Gamboa”.
2. The ZIP Consolidator field trip and associated short courses in Chile during October 2015 that addressed the monitoring and understanding of an active subduction zone.
