Meeting Times

This meeting is a workshop sponsored by the International Continental Drilling Program (ICDP). It is a result of the recomendation of the Science Advisory Group of ICDP which met at Potsdam on 17-19 of July, 1996. The plan of the workshop is as follows:

	1) Need for drilling of long records from large lakes to recover 	
		records of long-term climate change and evolution of major 
		lacustrine basins
	2) Need to have large geographic coverage of climate records in 	
		lakes especially for last couple glacial/interglacial cycles
	3) Need for high-resolution records for Holocene
	4) These needs require coordination, especially given practical limits 
		of ICDP
	5) Therefore, specific, identifiable, roles for ICDP and specifically 
		scientific drilling need to be developed within larger science 


	1) Identification of major scientific problems
	2) Development of long range (5 yr) plans
	3) Identification of specific roles for ICDP
	4) Identification of specific equipment needs
	5) Report outlining above


	Day 1
		1) Introduction of ICDP
		2) Relationship to other funding groups (NSF, etc.)
		3) Major science questions and engineering considerations
		4) Identification of sub-groups of participants

	Day 2
		1) Meetings of sub-groups
		2) Presentation of sub groups and discussions

	Day 3
		1) Engineering considerations		
		2) Writing up of reports of subgroups
		3) Discussion of report
