DCO researchers have contributed more than 1500 publications to the scientific literature over the past decade. In 2019 alone, ten books and special issue will publish.  This represents a phenomenal "ten in ten" achievement -- ten years of research, exploration, and discovery compiled in ten major contributions to the deep carbon scientific literature. 

This decade of publications forms the Bibliography of Contributions to the DCO, a valuable resource available to all for decades to come.
