- Benchmark the current state of our understanding of deep carbon
- Develop an ambitious, intellectually rigorous research agenda
- Cooperatively raise funding and execute that research agenda;
- Synthesize and disseminate findings to the larger scientific community and the public
- Strengthen the geophysical research community through the training of the next generation of young geoscientists and through the development of new instruments, models, and analytical methods.
Sloan grants to the DCO focus on providing funds for organization, institutional infrastructure, data management, and instrument development.
