Fennoscandia Arctic Russia - Drilling Early Earth Project

Project Acronym: FAR-DEEP | State: Completed | Expedition ID: 5018

The main scientific goal is to create a self-consistent model explaining the genesis and timing of the abrupt establishment of the modern Earth system through early Palaeoproterozoic time. This will be achieved utilising a multidisciplinary, international research group to study drillcore obtained from Palaeoprotrozoic volcano-sedimentary successions in Fennoscandia.
