Ocean drilling, IODP (active project, modest Canadian participation)
The IODP builds on the scientific results of the Deep-Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) initiated in 1968, the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) which succeeded the DSDP in 1985, the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program which began in 2003, and the encouragement that the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) has provided to international co-operation in marine scientific research.
