Telling Time with the Earth's Magnetic Field

Paleomagnetism is the study of the Earth’s ancient magnetic field. Such studies have helped lead to important discoveries like seafloor spreading and plate tectonics. Here on the JOIDES Resolution during Expedition 354, one of the main uses of this tool is to find out the age of sediments from the Bengal submarine fan. So how do we actually do that?

Inspiring Designs: Expedition 354 Logo Contest

It’s a tradition on the JOIDES Resolution to hold a contest to design the expedition logo, which will be printed on t-shirts and featured on a wall onboard. The Bengal Fan expedition received six entries from the Science Party and Education Officers. The designs were displayed in the galley for two days so that everyone could vote for their favorite. The winner was this beautiful design submitted by Kimberly Rogers. Here, each participant describes in their own words the different elements of their logo and the inspiration for their design.
