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.

IODP Expedition 405: Tracking Tsunamigenic Slip Across the Japan Trench

Scientists from ANZIC member institutions are invited to apply to join the Science Party for this expedition, planned for September-December 2024. The expedition aims to establish the properties, processes, and conditions within subduction zones that promote large slip to the Japan Trench and contribute toward the generation of large tsunamis.
Application deadline extended to 1 October 2023

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