Chew Bahir drill site late March 2014

As of March 21 with three successful coring days the team reached a sub bottom depth of 26 m, possibly just intersecting the Eemian, as their extrapolated sedimentation rates and red coarse grained structure visible from the core catchers suggests. Currently the team is waiting for a spare part for the casing which should arrive from Addis over the week-end. The weather conditions continue to be dry, which is perfect for drilling at the site (at the center of the basin)!
