Climate change, geohazards such as earthquakes or landslides, active geodynamic processes under our feet and the valuable georesources we all need—are the research challenges within ICDP. Raising awareness about the importance of scientific drilling and understanding its discoveries around the world plays a vital role in bringing science closer to society. ICDP researches questions in depth to understand and solve the major global challenges facing society today.
