First Paragraph

The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program adopted mission-​specific platform (MSP) expeditions in 2003 to extend the program’s capabilities for a new generation of scientific drilling projects in areas inaccessible to JOIDES Resolution, for example, ice-​covered seas, waters shallower than 100 m, and areas with hard rock exposed at the seabed or with unconsolidated sediments.
