This logo on the port and starboard side of the JOIDES Resolution says it all; we are beginning our journey as ocean detectives hoping to uncover the earth’s mysteries preserved in the ocean’s floor.

First task after we had sailed a few hours was to have our first all hands Safety Drill. When the very loud bell rang, we all grabbed our life vests, eye goggles and hard hats. Sort of like ‘March of the Penguins’ we all climbed the stairs to the life boats to await our instructions.

Today I visited the moon pool. This is one of the coolest places on the Jr. It is located on the drill floor a deck below where my office is located on the Foc’sle Deck (Forecastle). A hard hat and safety glasses are required, ear plugs are suggested too. What is the moon pool?

Drilling for an ocean core requires the deployment of drilling equipment and eventual retrieval back to the drill floor located on the stern of the vessel. The entire process is a wonder to watch, precision with massive, wielding clanking pipes of steel.

We are sailing in the Lesser Antilles or West Indies of the Caribbean Sea. Scientists aboard the JR such as volcanologist, sedimentologist, inorganic geochemist, and micropaleontologist are at this location in the ocean because of the volcano on Montserrat, called the Soufriere Hills volcano. This is one of the best studied volcanoes on the planet.
