After 10 years of successful international and multidisciplinary drilling projects, this volume provides a review and synthesizes the accomplishments of the past decade of the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program and, more importantly, defines opportunities for scientific advancement through future drilling projects, addressing a broad range of disciplines in the Earth Sciences.
Topics covered include the importance of scientific drilling for: Climate Change and Global Environments, Impact Structures, the Geobiosphere, Volcanic Systems, Active Faults, Hotspot Volcanoes and Large Igneous Provinces, Convergent Plate Boundaries and Collision Zones, and Natural Resources. In addition this book contains a summary of past projects and activities supported by the ICDP.
