From Adam to Earth Scientists in Training III

Dear Earth Scientists in Training,

In my last letter, we talked about what IODP is and the ships we use to study the Earth.  Today I have something very special about the people I sail and work with.

The JR has a new flag

Yesterday afternoon before the Science Party, Technical Staff and Crew Members left the ship to go to Ponta Delgada for a few last minute shopping they had time to see the change of the ship's flag. The JR is now a Cyprus-flag ship.
