Super excited to board JOIDES Resolution for IODP expedition 355

Just arrived in Colombo to board the JOIDES Resolution as shipboard science party for IODP expedition 355.

I am really looking forward to have the first hand experience on this world class unique floating state-of-art laboratory. Feels proud to be a part of this amazing endevaour by scientists and technical crew from around the world having inter-disciplinary expertise, and trying to discover the link between Monsson variability and the process of mountain built up in Asia. A bit like chicken and egg thing really, but I am quite positive that the team-355 is going to attempt to gather enough clues from the sub-seafloor which can allow us to build the story….
