Workshop on the future of Scientific Ocean Drilling with

with Mission-Specific Platforms and Chikyu – Jointly organised by ESSAC and J-DESC

ECORD and Japan have developed a new program to facilitate post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling using Mission Specific Platforms. The aim of this workshop is to encourage new scientific collaborations among the scientific communities of ECORD and Japan, together with international partners, in an online-only scientific workshop. This workshop, which will take place over three-days, will serve to review the status of planning of post-2024 Scientific Ocean Drilling, communicate the intention of the new ECORD-Japan program and collect new ideas for the development of new MSP and Chikyu drilling proposals based on identified knowledge gaps and novel scientific questions to be addressed in the next 5-10 years. The workshop will be structured following the Strategic Objectives of the 2050 Science Framework and will be open to participation of scientists from the whole international geoscience community. Participation from people with no prior involvement in scientific drilling is welcome.

The second phase of the workshop will be an in-person meeting in Fall 2023 with the purpose of developing the most promising ideas generated from the phase 1 workshop into drilling proposals.
