SEDCO/BP 471 will sail in January 1985 on Leg 101, the first leg of the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP). Augmenting this drilling effort is a new program of support designed to stimulate and encourage the widest possible community involvement in scientific ocean drilling. The program, which will be managed by Joint Oceanographic Institutions Incorporated (JOI) under a contract from the National Science Foundation (NSF) and with the guidance of JOI's newly established U.S. Science Advisory Committee for ODP (JOI-USSAC), will provide funds for U.S. scientists to conduct planning activities, participate in cruises, and carry out both pre- and post-cruise studies. These activities are intended to complement other drilling-related research funded directly by the National Science Foundation as described in the accompanying article.
