The JOIDES Resolution operates 24/7, this means that the boat never sleeps and the crew is on one of three shifts:
- Midnight to Noon – the dreaded ‘night’ shift.
- Noon to Midnight – the coveted ‘day’ shift
- 6am to 6pm
The scientists, technicians, engineers, drillers, and cooking and cleaning team work the night or day shifts, while the supervisors and chief scientists work 6am to 6pm so they cover both shifts.
