Continental Scientific Drilling Workshop



The Second Continental Scientific Drilling Program Workshop took place June 12–14, 1986, on the campus of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in Rapid City. Like the workshop held in Houston a year earlier, the Rapid City workshop was sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The NSF portion of the Continental Scientific Drilling Program (CSDP) is administered by a consortium of 36 universities through a nonprofit corporation named Deep Observation and Sampling of the Earth' Continental Crust, Inc., or more simply, DOSECC.
