Advancing global understanding of the Earth

JOI’s Mission:
Facilitating discovery through excellence in management of global science programs Developing a geoscience literate society Creating future generations of science leaders Translating science for decision makers Fostering global alliances
JOI currently manages:
The USIO (JOI, Texas A&M University, and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory) leads the efforts for U.S. activities in the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), which is the successor to the Ocean Drilling Program. IODP builds on and expands the explorations of ODP through enhanced collaborations with Japan, China, South Korea and a consortium of European countries. For more information about IODP and JOI’s role in the program, please contact Margo Morell. The U.S. Science Support Program, associated with IODP, supports U.S. scientists participation in IODP. For more information about this program, please contact Charna Meth. The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is managed by Joint Oceanographic Institutions. OOI coordinates the science, technology, education and outreach of an emerging network of science-driven ocean observatories. For more information about this program, please contact Emily Griffin. The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) was a 20-year international partnership of scientists and research institutions organized to explore the evolution and structure of the Earth through scientific ocean drilling. Although ODP has concluded, JOI is developing the program’s Legacy with its partners, Texas A&M University and Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. For more information on the ODP Legacy Project, please contact Margo Morell. In addition to these programs, JOI has an active education component called JOI Learning designed to provide educational materials to help students and teachers bring ocean science into the classroom. For more information about JOI Learning, please contact Sharon Katz-Cooper.JOI Diversity programs and partnerships provide learning opportunities,
mentoring, fellowships and other horizon-building experiences for
minority students to explore careers in the Earth System sciences. For more information about JOI Diversity, contact Amy Castner.JOI Communications engages all audiences, students, teachers, elected officials, and the general public, to better understand the significance of research discoveries, as well as the relevance and value of oceans research. For more information on JOI outreach activities, contact Susan Boa. JOI was established as a private, non-profit corporation in 1976 and is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Disclaimer Privacy Policy About JOI Calendar & Events¬†¬†Account/Subscriptions ManagementAbout JOIJOI and CORE (Consortium for Ocean Research and Education) have legally merged to form Consortium for Ocean Leadership. This alliance represents a critical move toward a unified voice in the nation’s capital for oceanographic research. CORE and JOI will continue to work under separate business lines within Ocean Leadership until the public launch of the new organization, expected in early 2008. Until that time, when you’ll find a unified Ocean Leadership website, the JOI website will continue to operate representing the JOI business line. JOI is a consortium of premier oceanographic research institutions that serves the U.S. scientific community through management of large-scale, global research programs in the fields of marine geology, geophysics, and oceanography. Known for leadership of U.S. scientific ocean drilling initiatives and growing involvement in ocean observing, JOI facilitates science advisory committees, coordinates with funding agencies and policy makers, sponsors meetings that enable scientific planning and exchange, and publicizes the opportunities and outcomes of its programs. For more than 30 years, JOI has helped facilitate discovery and advance global understanding of the Earth and its oceans through excellence in program management.
