Summary: New Zealand scientists were involved in the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) in the early seventies, and again last year. The present phase of drilling, with the famous drilling ship Glomar Challenger, will terminate by the end of this year. A new international follow-up project of scientific ocean drilling, the Advanced Ocean Drilling Programme (AODP), is being planned at present. Because New Zealand has expressed interest in becoming involved in the AODP, an invitation was received from JOIDES to send an observer to its Planning Committee (PCOM) meeting, held in San Francisco from 25 to 28 January. The meeting dealt with matters pertaining to the present DSDP and the future AODP. The latter was of special interest to the observers. The main points related to the AODP were the choice of drilling ship, the planning of the first two years of drilling, and its future advisory structure.
