Participating in an IODP Expedition is the experience of a lifetime, working as part of an integrated science party onboard a specialised drilling vessel to recover, examine, and unlock millennia of secrets hidden in deep sea cores. ANZIC’s membership to the IODP consortium secures onboard opportunities for researchers from Australia and New Zealand on every IODP expedition, with additional opportunities for onshore participation and onboard outreach.

With the US National Science Foundation’s March 2023 announcement that the JOIDES Resolution scientific drilling vessel is to be retired in September 2024, and all expeditions now scheduled until that date, opportunities to sail will be in the form of Mission Specific Platform (MSP) missions.
