Continental Drilling to Explore Earth's Sedimentary, Paleobiological, and Biogeochemical Record

Scientific Drilling and the Evolution of the Earth System: Climate, Biota, Biogeochemistry and Extreme Systems; Norman, Oklahoma, 17–19 May 2013



A workshop to promote research using continental scientific drilling to explore the Earth's sedimentary, paleobiological, and biogeochemical record was held in Norman, Okla. The workshop, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF), was intended to encourage U.S.-based scientists to take advantage of the exceptional capacity of unweathered, continuous sediment cores to serve as archives of the Earth's history.
