Hidden within the countless layers of rock, sediment, and fossilized creatures beneath the Earth’s surface are fascinating stories of the history of our planet—stories of how you and I came to exist. 

New Sites, New Rocks, New Challenges

It's been a busy number of days here on the JR since my last post!

Asut Tesoru (Big Blue)-We're making it!

Drill-Hole Forever?/ Bohrloch Für Immer?

At the beginning of 2017 the JOIDES Resolution is still working on Yinazao (Blue Moon-) seamount. Our visitors may ask: "What are they still doing there?" Well, there is an easy answer containing some details. We're preparing the drill hole N° 1492D (3666 mbsl.) near the top of the seamount for further investigation (see flag in model).

The Lull Before Asut-Tesoru...

It's been a rather quiet couple days here on the JR, as the drillers have been diligently drilling what will ultimately become a 200 m cased drill hole with an ROV landing pad on top, for future instrumentation and use as a venue for real-time measurements of the unusual upwelling fluids we encountered at Yinazao Seamount.
