The Mantle Observatory:
Connecting data from Earth's interior to the Universe

Illuminating long-run planetary habitability and its sustainability requires understanding interactions from inside Earth to the atmosphere to the Sun and beyond. The mantle drilling project will provide an unprecedented opportunity to establish monitoring of various environmental factors within the oceanic lithosphere and mantle. The mantle observatory data will be able to integrate into other observatory data from the ocean, biosphere, atmosphere, and the universe.
