Spotlight 8. Regional Science Planning

Anthony A.P. Koppers Clive R. Neal
First Paragraph

Although not new to scientific ocean drilling, International Ocean Discovery Program science planning has become regionally focused for two of its ship platforms, JOIDES Resolution and Chikyu. While the non-riser drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution follows a globe-encircling track that is regionally planned, riser vessel Chikyu operations focus on deep targets in regions around Japan, and the mission-specific platforms have been operating around the world.
