  •  Highlighting some of the scientific questions related to accretion processes at mid-ocean ridges;

  •  Results of IODP Expeditions on detachment faulting, hydrothermal alteration, magmatic processes in building crust at slow-spreading ridges;

  •  Insights on crustal accretion and cooling (IODP Expedition 345 at Hess Deep, 2002-03) of layered primitive gabbros of fast-spread crust;

  •  Next challenges for scientific drilling in the ocean lithosphere, the “MoHole to the Mantle” project (http://mohole.org), which aims to reach and sample the uppermost mantle beneath the Pacific fast-spread crust.
