EXTRA, EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT! Jeff and Stephen have written more about their experience on #EXP393. Check it out : joidesresolution.org/life-on-board-… AND joidesresolution.org/getting-ready-… 📸Tessa Peixoto/ IODP . .#NSFfundedd#scienceatseaa#bloggU
Dibs is not just for calling shotgun for an upcoming car ride, it is also for when you want to collect a sample from the working half of a core. Your dib is made official with a little flag with the type of analysis. #EXP393 📸Tessa Peixoto/IODP . .#NSFfundedd#labelss#scienceeX
We are officially out of our covid protocol and we spent our first day together as a group watching the sunrise (without masks). #EXP393 Photo: Alina Shchepetkina #NSFfunded #groupphoto #sunrise #scientists
The new (May/June) issue of the Marine Technology Society Journal is devoted to the UN Ocean Decade and includes a commentary on the need for a new, globally-ranging U.S. drillship. #IODP #NSFfunded #OceanDecade bit.ly/3bf72PG
Its a sit on the floor kind of meeting. While in transit our curatorial officer and lab officers met to discuss logistics of where to send samples after #EXP393. Photo: Tessa Peixot/IODP #NSFfunded #teammeeting

We are on the move again! Ready for our second site and to see what clues we learn about Earth’s past. 🎥Tessa Peixoto/IODP . .#EXP3933#NSFfundedd#oceanss#shippx
I spy a little crystal cave. After splitting this hard rock core, these crystalized minerals were exposed! #EXP393 Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfunded #rocks #crystal #geology
It was young hard rock vs iron drill bit at our first site. The brown drill bit put up a good fight and gave us some good cores, but that is the end for this drill bit! #EXP393 is moving onto our next site! Photos: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #scientificoceandrilling
Time to discuss some thin section images of hard rock cores. After using a microscope and a camera, scientists on #EXP393 deliberate the possible story this rock has to share. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #teammeeting #science
Each time a core is brought up co-chief scientists and a few members of the science team make initial observations if the core and discuss sampling strategies. #EXP393 Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfunded #geology #teamwork
A scientist led a ship to shore in Basque today!Ship to shores can be done in another language should there be someone onboard to speak it! Email [email protected] to sign up for your own. #EXP393 📸: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfundedd#outreachh#scienceeducationnv
The core lab isn’t the only lab on board. Moves are being made in the chemistry lab as they prepare for what kind of samples they will take from the first site cores! #EXP393 @Villalexndra @dsantiagoramos Photo:Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #chemistry #lab
Good morning world! I just had to share this photo of the clouds just before sunrise. #EXP393 is currently drilling at our first site in the South Atlantic Ocean. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #sunrise #moon #clouds
Make way for the core! @swidlansky and @geopavia are scanning sediment cores to help the #EXP393 team to identify the internal structure of the core. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #imaging #geology #science
Don't forget to register to attend the upcoming online Community Town Hall this Thursday. There will be updates on the JR schedule, the Science Mission Requirements workshop, and plans for the post-IODP era of scientific ocean drilling. Information is at bit.ly/3HGlHzE.
Marcin is a paleontologist onboard. He has told me about the weird but delicate shapes the different foraminifera can have. He looks for them in our core samples. 1st photo: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP 2nd and 3rd photo: Marcin Latas #EXP393 #NSFfunded #Fossils
Why were styrofoam cups sent to the seafloor? It is a great demonstration of the immense pressure that exists at the bottom of the sea. The colored cups went to the sea floor while the plain white cup stayed onboard. #EXP393 📸:Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfundedd#oceanographyyz
After the core is brought into the lab the technicians prepared it for the microbiologists to collect their samples before other tests are run. #EXP393 Photo:Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #science #research
WE GOT CORE! The drill pipe is working round the clock and we got our first core of hard rock! Thanks to the technicians who brought it onboard and prepared it the science team. #EXP393 Photo:Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #NSFfunded #ScientificOceanDrilling #geology
Rigwatch. Real time stats on what and how the drill pipe is doing as it is deployed. The only thing missing is having a commentator to go with it! Photo: Danielle Ramos #EXP393 #drilling #shiplife #science
The drillpipe is down 3000m below sea level, while above sea level we got a rainbow over the rig floor to entertain us while we wait for core! #EXP393 Photo:Tessa Peixoto/IODP #ScientificOceanDrilling #ship #NSFfunded
We are #grateful to all the fathers that have sailed, are sailing and will sail with us on the JOIDES Resolution. THANK YOU to the families, partners, and loved ones that stay home far away as the JR crew sails to find clues at the bottom of the #sea! . . . #IODP #JRSO #NSFfunded
WE ARE ONE SITE! The rig crew are assembling the drill pipe and I caught a glimpse of the drill bit before it disappeared below deck. In 12 hours we will have reached the sea floor! #EXP393. 📸Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfundedd#scientificoceandrillingg#shippM
Between 3am and 7am #EXP393 crossed the mid Atlantic ridge! We celebrated with themed party hats and cake! 📸Chiara Amadori #NSFfundedd#scientificoceandrillingg#craftsse
After the core is sawed in half lengthwise scientists can take samples from the working half for analysis. These pieces get replaced with styrofoam shapes labeled with the kind of analysis, here PMAG is for palaeomagnetic. 📸Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #EXP3933#researchh#earthhj
As we near our first site the #science team was briefed on what drilling tools will be used for each site. Thank you operations team! #EXP393 📸Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfundedd#ScientificOceanDrillinggm

At UTC time the JR team on #EXP393 will be crossing the Mid Atlantic Ridge. A few hours after that we will have finally arrived at our first site! Photo:Tessa Peixoto/IODP #ship #oceanography #geology #NSFfunded
If you ask “what is that color?” to the scientists around the cores, they all focus in on that one spot. The #science team is always happy to share their knowledge with me, and it is fun to hear what they know about sediment! Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP393 #NSFfunded
View from portside: the #micropaleontology lab gets a great uninterrupted view of the ocean. Microscopes are used by our scientists to sift through the sediment and count how many different #fossils we find in the core sample. 📸: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP3933#shipp#oceanviewssX
#Microbiologists on #EXP393 requested an anaerobic chamber to grow #microorganisms in their natural oxygen-free environment, and that’s what they’re going to get! Thanks to the technicians onboard, one is being assembled as we tweet. 📸Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfundedd#shiplifeez
Bad weather and a slow start, but that doesn’t mean we are giving up! Read our new blog post joidesresolution.org/the-never-endi… #EXP392 #NSFfunded #weather #ships
The pet wall is up! All crew members can now share in the common discussion of how cute our pets are! #EXP393 Photo: Tessa Peixoto/ IODP #pets #ships #NSFfunded
Sediments lying on pillow basalt in a core from deep under the sea bed. Kind of makes you think of chocolate pudding with brownie chunks at the bottom ( or am I just hungry?) Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP393 #geology #earthscience #NSFfunded
Smear slides in the making. Smearing is not only done with cream cheese on a bagel. It is also done by #EXP393 sedimentologists trying to identify different components in the sediment cores. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfunded #research #geology
Thank you so much to all our #SciOD_IMPACT attendees! This is only the beginning. #inspiration #determination #resilience
Every expedition makes a logo for their cruise. The one photographed is the expedition 395E logo that rescued a sea turtle tangled in loose fishing nets. #worldseaturtleday #storytime #NSFfunded #EXP393
Practice makes perfect. @aledevans practiced getting the core images scanned with the DMT aligned perfectly. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP393 #NSFfunded #coding #images #geology
Kicking off day 2 of the #SciOD_IMPACT workshop by learning about funding opportunities within the US Science Support Program and NSF!

Last year, during @TheJR's #Exp395C I had the privilege to recognize the amazing work done by the countless Filipino crew members aboard. Today, for Philippine Independence Day, I'd like to echo those sentiments again. youtube.com/watch?v=R_8MQL…

View from the Mess hall. Facing the stern you get a great view of the moon pool. It is where the drill pipe and cones are deployed at drilling sites. When in rougher water, it becomes the splash zone! 🎥 Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP3933#NSFfundedd#splashh#ScientificOceanDrillinggp
Tracing paper, a useful non-digital tool to trace the size and spacing of different minerals in basement cores. The only limitation is the number of colored pens you have! 📸: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #EXP3933#drawingg#mineralss#earthsciencee#scienceeducationnv
June 19th, the expected arrival at #EXP393 first drilling site. Lots of anticipation to get our hands on new core. Photo: Tessa Peixoto/IODP #NSFfunded #seatravel #ships
Time to share out, a great day for generating big ideas and strategies for broadening participation in scientific ocean drilling research! #SciOD_IMPACT@ForamWhisperer
