Science Plan (SP)
The International Ocean Discovery Program: Exploring the Earth under the Sea (IODP) continues over five decades of international collaboration to recover geological data and samples from beneath the ocean floor to study the history and dynamics of Planet Earth. IODP is guided by the science plan Illuminating Earth’s Past, Present, and Future.
Scientific emphasis is placed on four areas of investigations:
- Climate and Ocean Change: Reading the Past, Informing the Future
- Biosphere Frontiers: Deep Life, Biodiversity, and Environmental Forcing of Ecosystems
- Earth Connections: Deep Processes and Their Impact on EarthÕs Surface Environment
- Earth in Motion: Processes and Hazards on Human Time Scales
