Oman-DP/PHASE-1 completed!

Sultanate of Oman, Wadi Gideah

The Samail Ophiolite, in Oman and the United Arab Emirates, is the largest, best-exposed section of oceanic crust and upper mantle in the World. The Oman Drilling Project is a multi-national collaboration bringing together more than 100 geo-scientists from a broad spectrum of disciplines in order to address a diverse range of scientific questions relating to the formation, hydrothermal alteration and weathering of oceanic crust and upper mantle.

300.13 metres -- the final depth logged for the last drill core retrieved during Phase-1 of the Oman Drilling Project! (Credit: Jude Coggon). With that, the first part of the drilling campaign of the OmanDP is indeed complete! 1500 m fully cored, another 800 m of rotary drilling -- success all around! A huge thanks to everyone who helped to make this possible!
