Dear Colleagues,

The abstract deadline for EGU is fast approaching (15 January 2020).
If you are engaged in research relating to scientific drilling, then please consider presenting your exciting science in the following session:
SSP1.4: Achievements and perspectives in scientific ocean and continental drilling
Conveners: Antony Morris, Jorijntje Henderiks, Thomas Wiersberg
(Co-organized by CL5/EMRP3/NH5, co-sponsored by JpGU)
Scientific drilling through the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) and the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) continues to provide unique opportunities to investigate the workings of the interior of our planet, Earth’s cycles, natural hazards and the distribution of subsurface microbial life. The past and current scientific drilling programs have brought major advances in many multidisciplinary fields of socio-economic relevance, such as climate and ecosystem evolution, palaeoceanography, the deep biosphere, deep crustal and tectonic processes, geodynamics and geohazards. This session invites contributions that present and/or review recent scientific results from deep Earth sampling and monitoring through ocean and continental drilling projects. Furthermore, we encourage contributions that outline perspectives and visions for future drilling projects, in particular projects using a multi-platform approach.
With best wishes for a successful and Happy New Year!
Antony Morris, Jorijntje Henderiks and Thomas Wiersberg
