Ship Tour

Yesterday I took a tour of the JOIDES Resolution with Mike Storms, the operations officier for drilling. We started off in the Bridge and learned about the changes that were made to the ship in Singapore. The entire Bridge was raised one floor higher allowing for better visibility. It is filled with the latest technology. The view from the Bridge is great!

Arriving at First Site


The big day has arrived!! We have reached the first drilling site. The crew has been tripping drill pipe since a little after midnight and they were still at it at sunrise. Early this morning the scientists went through a short training session on how to log (record) the core data into the computer database. This is extremely important so that cores do not get mixed up.
