INVEST Conference

(IODP New Venture in Exploring Scientific Targets)White-Paper


University of Bremen, Germany, 23.–25.09.2009


INVEST is being organized as a large, multidisciplinary, international community meeting, whose focus is to define the scientific research goals of a new ocean drilling program, expected to replace IODP late in 2013.
Delegates from CoCaRDE participated to identify important targets for future drilling like cold-water and tropical carbonate factories, carbonate mounds and poorly sampled ecosystems. The Oviedo Declaration, our White Paper on Carbonate Mound Drilling, summarizes our interest.
