Short summary
The IODP scientific ocean drilling program drilled into the sediments of the Bengal–Nicobar submarine fan system west of Sumatra, Indonesia. Within the cores, a large piece of fossilized wood was discovered, 9 million years in age and buried beneath 800 m of sediment; it is thought to be the largest wood fragment found in scientific ocean drilling boreholes. The wood is believed to be a species of flowering plant and may have originated from the north, east, or even as a result of a tsunami.
