Pleased to meet you, I’ll be one of four education and outreach personal on-board expedition 360 of the JOIDES Resolution! I’m so excited to be updating you with the latest from the ship for the next two months. My personal favorite way to do this will be a podcast called A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea. The first episode will be released this week but to get you excited here is a little preview...

It’s our second day on the ocean and the boat is really starting to move! When it comes to motion sickness, let’s just say I’m very experienced. Planes, cars, boats, roller coasters, I’ve been sick on them all!

The media is very excited about expedition 360 but this has brought to light some public concerns. Co-chief scientist Chris Macleod adresses the online comments on the latest episode of A Hole at the Bottom of the Sea. Plus, we talk to second mate John Powell as the JR navigates a storm and Dr. Gene Molina about the challenges of being a doctor in the middle of nowhere.

An episode consisting of three stores: an idea that no one believed, how to start the hole itself, and an expedition of tragedy and discovery.

The goal of expedition 360 is to drill hole U1473 as deep as we possibly can in the two months we have onboard the JOIDES Resolution. Our target is 1300 meters, this would be the third deepest hole ever drilled into oceanic crust (ie. hard igneous and metamorphic rocks, we’re not counting the sediments that sit on top).

We successfully completed our reddit ask me anything (AMA), which turned out to be the busiest in IODP history! 9 of us spent 2 hours debating, researching, and answering 64 questions about the JR, expedition 360, and seafloor geology in general. You can read all the questions and answers on reddit< but here are some of our favorites...
