Lay Summary (German)

Lead
Die Mitgliedschaft in den beiden grossen internationalen wissenschaftlichen Tiefbohrprogrammen IODP und ICDP ermöglicht es den Forschenden an Schweizer Universitäten, aktiv Bohrungen vorzuschlagen, mitzuleiten und zu beproben. Dadurch wird ein breites Forschungsspektrum abgedeckt, das ohne Tiefbohrungen nicht behandelt werden kann (Naturgefahren, Umwelt- und Klimaänderungen, Biosphäre des Untergrundes, Ursprung des Lebens, Dynamik und Prozesse des Erdinnern, angewandte Aspekte wie Rohstoffe und Geothermie).
Lay summary

Inhalt und Ziel der Mitgliedschaften

Tiefbohrungen ermöglichen den Zugang zu verborgenen geologischen und biologischen Archiven im Erdinnern. Um diese kostspieligen Bohrungen durchführen zu können, hat sich die internationale Forschungsgemeinschaft in grossen Programmen zusammengeschlossen: i) im Rahmen des 'International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) durch das marine Tiefbohrungen auf allen Weltmeeren ermöglicht werden; und ii) im Rahmen des 'International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP)', welches kontinentale Tiefbohrungen ermöglicht. Damit steht die 'gesamte' Erdoberfläche und deren Untergrund als potentielles Bohrziel für die Schweizer Forschungsgemeinschaft zur Verfügung. Es können verschiedene Bohrinfrastrukturen und Bohrlochinstrumente durch die Forscher der Mitgliedsländer benutzt werden.

 

Wissenschaftlicher und gesellschaftlicher Kontext der Bohrprogramme

Wissenschaftliche Tiefbohrungen liefern neue und wichtige Informationen nicht nur im Bereich der Grundlagenforschung in den Geo- und Biowissenschaften, sondern sie ermöglichen auch neue Einblicke in gesellschaftlich relevante Themen. Dazu gehören die Untersuchung von Naturgefahren wie Erdbeben, Tsunamis, Vulkane und Meteorite, eine nachhaltige Nutzung der Rohstoffe, und die Auswirkungen und Milderung der Klima- und Umweltveränderungen. Die grosse Anzahl der laufenden IODP und ICDP Projekte, sowie deren internationale Sichtbarkeit, erlaubt es Schweizer Forschenden neue Themen in der Forschung aktiv mitzubestimmen und somit die Forschungslandschaft entscheidend zu mitzuprägen.

Abstract

Scientific ocean drilling provides the only means to access valuable information recorded in the sediments and rocks beneath the seafloor, to conduct seafloor experiments, and to monitor conditions and active processes in remote marine environments. With the Swiss membership in the Integrated Ocean Discovery Program (IODP), scientist from Swiss research institutions are enabled to propose, conduct and sample marine drilling operations all over the world. IODP emphasizes in particular drilling targets addressing i) climate and ocean change through reading sedimentary archives, ii) biosphere frontiers through studying the deep Life, biodiversity, and environmental forcing of ecosystems, iii) earth connections comprising processes and their impact on earth’s surface environment, and iv) the earth in motion focusing on processes and hazards also on human time scales. The past years have shown, that Swiss researchers were intensely involved addressing these topics with many IODP drilling projects. In particular, major IODP proposals have even been (co-)proposed by researchers at Swiss institutions, documenting that the Swiss science community takes a leading role in fostering scientific continental drilling. In addition, representatives of Swiss research institutions are also active on various panels evaluating, steering and managing the international marine drilling activities. A philosophy of 'drilling without limits' will be achieved by close cooperation between the marine and the continental scientific drilling communities, accessible through concomitant membership in the International Continental Drilling Project (ICDP). Consequently, the Swiss scientific drilling community merges its activities under the swissdrilling.ch umbrella, representing both, marine and continental projects. Some of the newly proposed initiatives qualify for the recently encouraged 'amphibious' approach, for which marine-continental transects can be proposed within the same proposal. The IODP membership is also important for students and young researchers, as the program offer a variety of opportunities providing promising perspectives for the future.
