From Adam to Earth Scientists in Training IV

Dear Earth Scientists in Training,

Here's a little more background information about the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program that involves every part of the globe.  Take a look and see what you think.  And for all the third graders and elementary students onshore, you can get your own JR tracking globe by writing to the folks at the Deep Earth Academy<!

On site and nearly ready to drill!

Hi, The Joides Resolution is now in place over our first drilling site. We expect the first cores on deck very soon. The first 50m set of 5 cores is mainly to enable very detailed geochemistry and microbiology sampling. We in the chem. lab (Julius, Toshi, Maria, George, Yulia, Curly and I) will be kept extremely busy over the next few days.
