IODP provides pdf, jpg, and eps maps of drilled sites from all scientific ocean drilling programs through the JOIDES Resolution Science Operator. To add and visualize data in Google Earth or through other formats, IODP also maintains the following files:

  • Drilled Holes: Provides the location of all holes drilled during the scientific ocean drilling programs. Holes are added to these files once the Preliminary Report for the expedition is published. If available, water depth, meters of core recovered, links to core and log data, and links to the visual core description are provided. These files were last updated with available data in September 2021.
    • KML link (requires an internet connection for data and automatic updates)
    • KML file (downloadable)
    • CSV file (downloadable)
  • Scheduled Expeditions: Reflects decisions as of September 2021 and shows the location of all proposed sites for planned expeditions. The data is collected from the expedition’s Scientific Prospectus or, if the Scientific Prospectus is not available, the drilling proposal. The files contain the expedition name, site name and coordinates, planned expedition dates, original proposal number, platform, co-chiefs, and a link to the expedition website. Once the Preliminary Report for the expedition is published, the expedition is moved to the Drilled Holes files.
    • KML link (requires an internet connection for data and automatic updates)
    • KML file (downloadable)
    • CSV file (downloadable)
  • Proposed Sites: Shows the location of all sites in Active Proposals under review or awaiting scheduling as of September 2021. Sites from declined proposals are not included. The files contain the proposal name, site names and coordinates, lead proponent, review stage, and proposed platform. Sites from revisions, updates, and addenda might not be included.

IODP Publications

The standard IODP publication series Scientific Prospectus, Preliminary Report, and Proceedings for each IODP expedition is written by the science party and published by IODP Publication Services at Texas A&M University. IODP Publication Services also maintains the searchable Scientific Ocean Drilling Bibliographic Database and publishes the following documents and reports: 

Scientific Drilling

Scientific Drilling, sponsored by the International Ocean Discovery Program and the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program, is the open-access journal dedicated to the latest science and news from scientific drilling and related programs in the geosciences. The inaugural issue was published in 2005. Scientific Drilling delivers peer-reviewed reports from recently scientific drilling projects, reports on engineering/technical developments, workshops, and other news/updates from the community. Scientific Drilling is published by Copernicus GmbH on behalf of German Research Centre for Geosciences (GFZ). 

Scientific Literature

Researchers using IODP samples and data once the moratorium period has passed are encouraged to publish their results in the peer-reviewed literature. They are requested to comply with the following guidelines from the IODP Sample, Data, and Obligations Policy:

  • Submit a manuscript for publication, if possible, within 36 months after receiving samples.
  • Include the words International Ocean Discovery Program or IODP in the abstract (or wording appropriate to the DSDP, ODP, or the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program). 
  • Acknowledge IODP in all publications that result from the data collected from samples received using the following wording: This research used samples and/or data provided by the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). Funding for this research was provided by _________.
  • Provide the following key words, as appropriate, to the manuscript publisher: International Ocean Discovery Program, Integrated Ocean Drilling Program, Ocean Drilling Program, or Deep Sea Drilling Project name of drilling platform, Expedition or Leg ###, expedition or leg title, and/or Site ### (where ### is the cruise or site identifier).
  • Notify the IODP curator of manuscript acceptance and submit complete citation information so the publication can be entered into the Scientific Ocean Drilling Bibliographic Database. 

 

Workshops are often used to develop new drilling proposals that can optimize possible science through use of IODP’s platforms or to synthesize research results. IODP does not have a central funding source for workshops. Proponents can contact their PMO, funding agencies, and other sources for more information on their funding opportunities, including USSSP's IODP Workshop Program and the MagellanPlus Workshop Series Programme.
