There is a poster available that is all about the hole the JOIDES Resolution is currently drilling in. It was designed by the Deep Earth Academy as an educational tool for high school and undergrad classes. It includes images of cores and data from a past expedition to this hole as well as activities that expand the learning. And it’s free!
