Climb 216 feet (66 meters) up the derrick to get a view of the South Pacific and the New Zealand coastline from the top of the JR. Use your mouse to scroll around to get a 360 degree view from the top.
Use your mouse to scroll around 360 degrees while you go on a tour of the engine room, see where the water reclaiming happens, and step on top of the spiral staircase and look out to sea.
Experience a lifeboat drill on the JR in 360 Use your mouse to click around a full 360 degree view of the weekly lifeboat drill on the JR. First we’ll be on deck and then we’ll go inside one of the lifeboats to hear about safety precautions.
Experience daily life on the JR in 360 Use your mouse to click around a full 360 degree view of some daily life perspectives.
Experience the JR drill floor in 360 Use your mouse to click around these 360 degree videos to get a full view of the drill floor as the crew brings a core on deck, the drill house, and different perspectives around the derrick.
Experience the lab space on the JOIDES Resolution in 360 Use your computer mouse to click around a full 360 degrees in these videos to get an idea of what the labs are like while operations are happening on the JR. In each of the perspective, scientists move around in their workspace, while the cores are being brought in from the catwalk (check out our 360 of the catwalk in a previous post), the cores…
Episode 2: the birth of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet reviews Expedition 374’s journey to Sites 2 and 3 on the Ross Ice Shelf as the ship moves farther out to sea. The team retrieved sediment that reveals the presence of past glaciers and open marine conditions. We are more than halfway through our cruise!
This is our first in a series of 360 videos. This video shows a core coming on deck on the catwalk. It fades to a microbiologist taking a sample from the core, and then the technicians beginning to take the 1.5 meter sections of the cores into the lab. On the wall opposite the core liner, you can see a micropaleontologist waiting for the core catcher sample to take back to the lab. In the…
Episode 1: Reaching the mid-Miocene Drilling at the first site is complete. Scientists looked at cores that revealed the presence of former glaciations and reached back in time about 16 million years to the period of geologic history known as the mid-Miocene. The mid-Miocene is important because it was a warm period in Earth’s history, similar to how it is today. Because of this past warmth, the mid-Miocene may provide an analog to what lies in store…
Diatom specialist and experienced Antarctic scientist David Harwood gives a 5min tour of the JOIDES Resolution, from the bridge to where the cores are brought on deck to the labs.
