An Unusual Beginning (Video)

Expedition 390 has had an unusual beginning for an IODP expedition. Normally, we would not be working on sediment cores until we reach our site, begin drilling, and hear that first exciting announcement over the loudspeaker, “Core on deck!”

However, our scientists began their sediment core description of our Expedition 390 sites in Cape Town before we even left port. Find out why in this video!
