Research project

IODP Expedition 319 Nankai subduction drilling

Project overview

This project supported Lisa McNeill as one of the 6 Co-Chief Scientists running the drilling expedition on the Nankai subduction zone. This was part of a larger project, Nantroseize, to drill, sample and monitor the subduction zone to assess its hazard potential and how faults generate earthquakes and tsunamis. The expedition was the first to use riser drilling in scientific ocean drilling.
