More about this Image The NSF Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) studies the portions of the earth's crust that are submerged below the ocean surface to reveal its composition, structure and history. ODP uses the drillship JOIDES Resolution (pictured here) to log and collect geologic samples from the floor of the deep ocean basins through rotary coring and hydraulic piston coring. The logs and samples of the cores are made available to qualified scientists throughout the world for their research.
