IODP Science Plan

Annual PlanThe Science Plan for the International Ocean Discovery Program, Illuminating Earth’s Past, Present, and Future, is intended to guide multidisciplinary international collaboration on scientific ocean drilling during the period 2013-2023.
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
