Technological Drivers for Future IODP Science: Progressing from application-specific to systematic technological development
2009 (English)Conference paper, Presentation (Refereed)
Since its inception with the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) scientific ocean drilling has always had a technology development component. Technology development has been critical for advancing ocean drilling and scientific progress would not have occurred without it. Resolution of the simpler technical problems have progressed satisfactorily through an application-specific process, however the more difficult and complex problems that limit achieving many of the scientific objectives of the Initial Science Plan (ISP) and active IODP drilling proposals remain unresolved and will require a more comprehensive and systematic effort. This White Paper highlights key technological/scientific goals identified by the Engineering Development Panel (EDP)-Improving Core Recovery and Quality; Addressing Geohazards; Microbiology in the Marine Subsurface Environment; Drilling to the Moho and Other Complex Drilling Projects; and Virtual Staffing-that are derived from the EDP Technology Roadmap v. 3.0 (http://www.iodp.org/eng-dev), the ISP, and active drilling proposals; and reinforced by the Science and Technology Panel (STP) Roadmap (v. 0.93). They offer the greatest promise for transforming scientific ocean drilling. In order to accomplish some of these goals, large-scale engineering developments will be necessary to deliver the transformational science needed by any drilling program beyond 2013.
