FINAL REPORT Australasian IODP Regional Planning Workshop

The Final Report from the Australasian IODP Regional Planning Workshop in Sydney is now complete.  We would like to thank the workshop convenors and participants for their contributions, especially Rob McKay who has taken the lead in compiling this report. The workshop was universally regarded by the 100 participants as very timely and worthwhile, and we expect that by April 2018 it will trigger at least a dozen pre-proposals for globally significant scientific drilling in the region. A summary report will be submitted to Scientific Drilling in October 2017.
