Deadline: 16 September 2022

Members of the ANZIC community are invited to provide feedback on the draft report on Science Mission Requirements for a globally ranging riserless U.S. drilling vessel to address high priority scientific objectives outlined in the 2050 Science Framework: Exploring Earth by Scientific Ocean Drilling. This report has been prepared by a steering committee of the U.S. Science Support Program (USSSP) at the request of the National Science Foundation, and is the culmination of an extensive process that included the U.S. community survey, a series of online workshops, and an in-person workshop held in Chicago in May 2022.

Science Mission Requirements for a New Riserless U.S. Drilling Vessel

The draft report has now been posted for community feedback from U.S and non-U.S. members of the IODP community, with a submission deadline of 16 September 2022. This is an opportunity for the global ocean research community to provide input on a critical facility necessary to carry out the aims of the 2050 Science Framework.
