German Continental Deep Drilling Program

The two super-deep boreholes (4000 m and 9101 m) of the German Continental Deep Drilling Program are worldwide unique masterstrokes of drilling engineering. It yielded essential insights in the structure and processes of the upper crust of the Earth. For this reason it is one of the most important geoscientific and geotechnical research projects.

The great success in geosciences and drilling engineering induced the scientists to establish the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP).
