Introduction

This addendum to the Scientific Prospectus of the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) South China Sea Rifted Margin Expeditions 367 and 368 (Sun et al., 2016) addresses a change of port-of-call and a two-day extension to Expedition 368 and modifications to some of the primary and alternate sites for both expeditions.

As of the date of publication of this addendum, Expedition 368 is scheduled to start in Hong Kong on 9 April 2017 and end in Shanghai on 11 June. The two-day extension allows for the additional transit to Shanghai at the end of the expedition without taking time away from scientific drilling operations.
