First ship to shore event of IODP 355

As we are progressing deep into the scientific quest of the IODP expedition 355, today we had our first outreach activity – Ship-to Shore Event.

It was a very pleasant experience for scientists onboard to have live interaction with young minds. Despite slow communication lines from sea which requires much patience from both sides, the scientists and technical staff onboard state-of-art laboratory JR are always eager to share their shipboard experience with the budding scientists from various parts of the world. That indeed keeps us motivated towards digging deep into the ocean and to look for the Holy Grail of Asian Monsoon.
