This project has not only been a fun way for me to document our expedition, but it also records the voices of ship participants and their actual feelings at the moment – the excitement, the frustration, the sadness.. all of it authentic and in their own voice.

What future investments can we make on the JR to be in partnership with the planet? Scientists on Expedition 390 have been reflecting upon the Earth Day 2022 theme and the mission of scientific ocean drilling.

The following is a repost from the JOIDES Resolution blog for Expedition 390 – South Atlantic Transect 1. I wrote the post How Expedition 390 Advances Ocean Literacy while sailing on the JR to help educators see the connection between the scientific mission of my expedition and why it matters to students and to those that are not scientists as defined by the Ocean Literacy Principles.

For those that head off to do fieldwork, especially on the ocean, I encourage you to think about creating your own Google Earth file with daily updates to keep other engaged and informed about your work.

I’ve been exploring articles on the past, present, and future of scientific ocean drilling. As I’ve come across several articles to use with the students in my college classroom, I thought I would compile and share this list so that and anyone with a general interest in scientific ocean drilling could read, learn, and share.
Before heading out on IODP Expedition 390, I’m taking a look at why this South Atlantic location for coring and drilling in the deep ocean is so important for scientific and historical reasons.

The co-chief scientists of IODP joint Expeditions 390/393 responded to this question: What is one piece of information you would like a person (non-scientist) to know about the upcoming EXP 390/393? See how each responded!

Scientists on the first oceanographic expedition realized how important it was to engage in science communication and storytelling outside of their science circles, while at sea and upon returning home. This is a good reminder that we need to continue to build upon those early messages sent via snail mail, using our modern-day technologies, to share our oceanographic work with others. Communications, no matter what the tool utilized, is key to education, engagement, excitement, and increasing science literacy across all audiences.

What happens between the time one is accepted to sail on the JR as an education/outreach officer and the actual day one boards the ship? Alot of training! Learn more about how we prepare to do science communications from the JOIDES Resolution.

The missions of H.M.S. Challenger and JOIDES Resolution – a comparison of ocean exploration then and now
This year marks the 150th anniversary of the departure of the first ocean research expedition, H.M.S. Challenger. This year is when I am departing on JOIDES Resolution. I thought it would be interesting with Challenger’s anniversary to take a moment and reflect upon the mission of each research vessel to see how their missions are different between the two ships and over time.
