engineering mission.png
IODP-MI is committed to dramatically improving the technological capabilities of the scientific ocean drilling program, through hardware, software, techniques and processes. IODP technology development must be innovative and may be daring, while utilizing time proven engineering practices to ensure success. Technology initiatives must be part of the full spectrum of scientific challenges detailed by the scientific drilling community, yet not limited to solutions currently residing in the ocean and earth sciences. IODP-MI will facilitate the acquisition of existing or latent technology through all possible avenues for the collection of requisite earth science data to further our understanding of earth and its complex systems.
