After leaving JOIDES Resolution, I knew I wanted to pull together a data visualization that not only documented the daily Sky/Cloud measurements, but also as a shout-out to the kindergarten teacher that turned her students into mini-scientists observing the world around them, and to the Second Mate from JR Expedition 390 who took the time to explain to the kids (and to me!) his daily weather observations and for responding to all the questions.

Cape Town has served as a port of call for these two scientific vessels and others, playing an important role in supporting science at sea.

the possibility of finding life in the universe has increased thanks to the ocean analog from our own planet. Samples from Expedition 390, which are collected from aa subsurface environment where basement is in contact with water, will advance our scientific knowledge and may help guide the direction for future astrobiology research as we continue to search for life in Earth’s deep ocean system and on other worlds.

Do you know the names Maria Cita, Elizabeth Gealy, and Catherine Nigrini? They are important women in the history of scientific ocean drilling.

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.
