Information - IS59 - SSP28/CL50/GMPV39/TS21 EuroFORUM 2008: Achievements and perspectives in ocean and continental drilling (co-organised by SSP, CL, GMPV & TS; co-listed in OS)
Since 1968, scientific ocean drilling is recovering unique global geological records preserved in marine sedimentary deposits and basement rocks. These records have been key for major advances in our understanding of Earth’s dynamic nature and its changing tectonics, climate, ocean circulation, and biota.
Global continental efforts are coordinated within the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, ICDP. Funding and support for research projects is provided to tackle challenging geoscientific themes of socio-economic relevance such as paleoclimate, earthquakes and volcanism, or unconventional energy resources.
The principal goals of the IODP-ICDP EuroFORUM’08 are to summarize and review major scientific achievements in ocean and continental drilling with special emphasis on the European contributions to IODP and ICDP. Furthermore, perspectives and visions for drilling projects using a multi-platform approach will be tackled.
