JAMSTEC Chikyu SCORE Expedition 910 "The west off Cape Erimo Drilling" Y. Kubo, F. Inagaki, and the Expedition 910 Shipboard Scientists

Short summary
The Chikyu Shallow Core Program (SCORE) has been started to provide more opportunities for scientific ocean drilling of shallow boreholes (up to 100 m) during a short-term expedition. The proposal flow is a simplified version of that of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). Although there are several limitations for a SCORE project, the opportunity to retrieve 100 m of continuous core samples will be of interest for the scientific ocean drilling community in multiple disciplines.
