IODP
Sand for Students is a program in which students themselves collect sand from nearby rivers and seashores, to build a worldwide sand database. What’s interesting about collectingsand, you might wonder. ‘Isn’t sand all the same?’ But look at it closely and you will see that sand differs, depending on where it is found. A region’s sand, in fact, is packed full of all sorts of information about its geology. The sand data your research provides will also be used as references for comparison with the core samples acquired by the scientific deep-sea drilling. In the course of collecting those extremely important materials, you will also experience the satisfactions of doing fieldwork, using your hands, body, and mind to carry out the program. We also hope that participating will get you thinking about this Earth on which we all live.
