Indian Ocean IODP Workshop

October 17-18, 2011 – Goa, India
Convener: Steven Clemens


Nearly ten years have passed since the last scientific drilling expedition in the Indian Ocean. As a consequence, a number of highly rated but unscheduled proposals remain active within IODP. These proposals address a broad range of themes targeted by the IODP Initial Science Plan spanning Environmental Change, Deep Biosphere, and Solid Earth Cycles and Geodynamics. The workshop on scientific drilling in the Indian Ocean promoted and strengthened existing drilling proposals and formulated new drilling proposals that meet the goals of the IODP post-2013 science plan.
