Core on deck!

Expedition 355 is now officially in business. Around 2:45 AM local time our very first core arrived on deck at Site U1456. It seemed to be a nice nannofossil ooze with a bunch of clay in it so hopefully plenty of stuff for all our scientists to get working on. Now the fun really begins because this will not be the last by any means. We are now expecting to have 10 m of material arriving on the deck at least once an hour for quite some time now. Let’s hope that the rest of the cores can also be nice like this first one. Stay tuned for more news from the Arabian Sea
