Proceedings of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP)


This Open Access article collection contains the Proceedings of the International Ocean Discovery Program and Proceedings of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program summarizing the scientific and technical accomplishments of each IODP expedition.




About IODP

The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments. IODP depends on facilities funded by three platform providers with financial contributions from five additional partner agencies. Together, these entities represent twenty-three nations whose scientists are selected to staff IODP research expeditions conducted throughout the world's oceans. Scientist activities are managed by the IODP Program Member Offices


SCIENCE PLAN 2013-2023

IODP expeditions are developed from hypothesis-driven science proposals aligned with the program's Science Plan Illuminating Earth's Past, Present, and Future and are carried out in accordance with the program's Principles of Scientific Investigation. The science plan identifies 14 challenge questions in the four areas of climate change, deep life, planetary dynamics, and geohazards. 





Platform Providers:
  • The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF)
  • Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT)
  • The European Consortium for Ocean Research Drilling (ECORD)
Additional Funding Partners:
  • China's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST)
  • Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources (KIGAM)
  • Australian-New Zealand IODP Consortium (ANZIC)
  • India's Ministry of Earth Science (MoES)
  • Coordination for Improvement of Higher Education Personnel, Brazil (CAPES)
