Going to the Moho

The JOIDES Resolution has left the Superfast hole and come back to port and this expedition is just about finished. While drilling, we went deep into the ocean floor, and got that much closer to the Moho, the boundary between the mantle and the crust.

Happy Birthday Andrija Mohorovicic!


One of the main objectives of Expedition 360 is to start the hole that will hopefully lead us to the Moho. That's sort of a funny sounding name isn't it? And what is the Moho, anyway?
