The purpose of the TIME workshop is to open the opportunities by the Tyrrhenian basin to a broader group of interdisciplinary experts to develop an International Ocean Discovery Plan (IODP) proposal. TIME workshop will foster discussion about a series of fundamental questions on rifting of continental lithosphere, the formation of the COT, the development of late synrift magmatism and/or seafloor spreading, and mantle exhumation by tectonic extension processes.

The TIME proponents consider that a revision of the Tyrrhenian data set as well as a re-examination of the fundamental scientific questions to be tackled are needed in order to target and prioritize the location of the drilling sites.
