An international, multidisciplinary community workshop convened to define scientific projects for the next decade of scientific ocean drilling utilizing unique capabilities afforded by the drilling vessel Chikyu (“Earth” in Japanese). The meeting, attended by 397 participants from 21 countries, featured 10 keynote lectures. Participants in working groups identified important projects that are fundamental to understanding the Earth system and that require deep penetration of the seafloor.
