Drilling and coring of the seafloor provide scientists with essential materials for studying of climate/environmental changes, deep biosphere, geophysics and geodynamics of the Earth. ECORD scientists take part in the scientific ocean drilling programme, the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), and previously the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP 2003-2013). Being a member of IODP provides ECORD scientists to participate in all activities of the IODP programme.

ECORD also operates the IODP Mission-specific platform (MSP) expeditions in challenging environments, including ice-covered areas and shallow seas.

IODP expedition data and samples are public and results are published in the Scientific Drilling journal.
