Engineering and drilling challenges identified at COSOD I (Conference on Scientific Ocean Drilling) in 1981 and met in the first two years of operation include carbonate reefal sequencing (Bahamas, Leg 101), high-latitude drilling (Baffin Bay, Leg 105), ridge-crest drilling (Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Leg 106), and accretionary prism sequencing (Barbados Transect, Leg 110).
The DCS system is expected to solve several high-priority objectives identified in 1987 by COSOD II working groups, especially for deeper drilling in difficult lithologies.
Because the geological challenges presented at COSOD I and II and in the ODP Long Range Plan (1990) have become increasingly difficult, technology developments for scientific ocean drilling are critical.
