Work aboard the ship never ceases; operations continue 24 hours a day. The JR’s complement can consist of 50 scientists and technicians and 65 crew members. A curator controls storage and preservation of cores. A photographer records the appearance of each core when it first arrives into the core laboratory. Come meet our crew….

Even during port call (click for FAQ port call definition), work continues around the clock.
