Spotlight 10. Future Opportunities in Scientific Ocean Drilling: Natural Hazards

Harold J. Tobin Demian M. Saffer
First Paragraph

The marriage of coring and integrated borehole instrumentation has changed our view of these phenomena, revealing variations in subsurface conditions that precede and follow them.
