CHIKYU EXPEDITION CDEX VISITOR'S GUIDE
for Researchers
The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research drilling program dedicated to advancing scientific understanding of Earth by monitoring and sampling subseafloor environments. Through multiple platforms, preeminent scientists explore IODP principal themes: the deep biosphere, environmental change, and solid earth cycles.
IODP expeditions are implemented based upon the science proposal submitted by scientists. The proposal is reviewed and developed with science member of Science Advisory Structure. Data and samples are available one year after the expedition without any charge. IODP is the scientist-driven international program.

Submit scientific drilling proposal
IODP receives drilling proposals from the scientific community and evaluates those proposals through a science advisory structure (SAS) and through external peer review. Unless otherwise specified, all submitted items related to drilling proposals must arrive in the IODP-MI Sapporo office by 23:59 GMT on the semiannual deadlines of either 1 April or 1 October.
Access Science Data
The IODP and Legacy (DSDP/ODP) data acquired by any drill ship includes the Chikyu is available after one year moratorium period through the Scientific Earth Drilling Information Service - SEDIS.

Submit Sample Request
The IODP and Legacy (DSDP/ODP) core samples are managed at three repositories (Kochi Core Center- Japan, Texas A&M University - USA, University of Bremen - Germany) and providing curation services. The IODP core samples are available after one year moratorium period by submitting sample request proposal.
