ODP Log Database
Database of the log data collected by the Ocean Drilling Program.
The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) is an international research program that explores the history and structure of the earth as recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks. IODP builds upon the earlier successes of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) and the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), which revolutionized our view of Earth history and global processes through ocean basin exploration (see Legacy of Scientific Ocean Drilling). IODP represents the latest generation of these highly successful scientific ocean-drilling initiatives and seeks to greatly expand the reach of these previous programs by forming a collaborative union between the United States, Japan, and the European Union, each of whom will be responsible for providing drilling platforms appropriate for achieving the scientific objectives outlined in the IODP Initial Science Plan.
