The Ocean Drilling Program: Results From the Sixth Year of Field Operations Conference Paper uri icon


  • The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) has completed 46 internationally staffed expeditions and eight years of scientific ocean drilling in search of answers relating to the tectonic evolution of passive and active continental margins, origin and evolution of oceanic crust, origin and evolution of marine sedimentary sequences, and paleoceanography. To address these problems, ODP has made numerous advances in technology for retrieval of continuous undisturbed cores under hostile environmental conditions. ODP curates over 172.87 km of cored material and associated scientific data bases and publishes results of the scientific expeditions in a continuous series of Proceedings volumes.
