A reading list on scientific ocean drilling for university undergraduate students
I’ve been exploring articles on the past, present, and future of scientific ocean drilling. As I’ve come across several articles to use with the students in my college classroom, I thought I would compile and share this list so that and anyone with a general interest in scientific ocean drilling could read, learn, and share.
