DOSECC sponsors thematic workshops that allow investigators to bring together teams to organize proposals and solve engineering problems related to scientific drilling and sampling.
DOSECC (Drilling, Observation and Sampling of the Earths Continental Crust) is a not-for-profit corporation whose mission is to provide leadership and technical support in subsurface sampling and monitoring technology for addressing topics of scientific and societal importance. Fifty-six research organizations are members of DOSECC. Our goals are as follows:
Facilitate and support cost-effective scientific drilling projects
Link science and drilling technology
Design, build and operate drilling systems
Promote technology transfer and education
Represent U.S. interests in the international scientific drilling community.
The Snake River Scientific Drilling Project began in September 2010. This project will explore the interaction between the Earth's mantle and crust by collecting drill core at three sites in southern [ ... ]
