icdp for stakeholders

...enabled first-class science & fundamental ‘System Earth’ discoveries

The International Continental Scientific Drilling Program has played a primary role over the past two decades, uncovering geological secrets from beneath our continents through targeted scientific drilling. As a non-profit organization for modern Earth science, it has enabled first-class research to be pursued, numerous targets to be probed, and hypotheses to be tested, resulting in fundamental discoveries about ‘System Earth.’ Networking with other science programs has become important over time, and bridges have been built with the private and government.
