It takes a diverse team of scientists to conduct an IODP expedition, with expertise ranging from micropaleontology to geochemistry to paleomagnetics to core descriptions, and more. Shipboard sedimentologists are entrusted with the task of observing every inch of core collected at sea and making initial observations about past conditions of the Earth system by eye (or hand lens!). Follow Pincelli Hull (Yale University) and Brian Romans (Virginia Tech) as they take you through a typical day aboard the JOIDES Resolution, from describing grain size and composition to digitally logging this data to inform further analysis for other teams aboard the ship.
