ICDP Australia Workshop

With Australian ICDP membership imminent, join us to kick-start Australia’s participation in the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program!

Joining ICDP

ICDP membership will connect Australian and international scientists to terrestrial drilling capability and logistical support as well as open new possibilities for local projects and international collaborations.

Join us for the workshop!

At this workshop, hosted by the University of Adelaide, you’ll find out more about the capabilities, infrastructure and opportunities provided by ICDP membership. There will also be a chance to discuss future project ideas.

We’re thrilled to have ICDP Executive Director, Prof. Marco Bohnhoff  participating.

Anyone interested in drilling-based projects under the umbrella of ICDP’s primary science themes – Geodynamic processes, Geohazards, Georesources & Environmental change – is invited to attend. If you already have ideas for topics to discuss, please get in touch.
