It's ?#?ScienceSunday (https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/sciencesunday?source=feed_text&story_id=855268471218442)?, and we are busy as bees in the lab! Here is Dr. Rob Hatfield (OSU) standing with all the sediment cores that have been processed as of the afternoon of Aug.1st. The cores are arranged in order of increasing depth/age from left to right. What could these dramatic changes in color mean? Read our previous post for some ideas: tinyurl.com/okuje2k Meanwhile, the day shift (on Aug.2nd) hit a thick layer of sand that was impenetrable. That makes Hole A at Drill Site #1 complete at just over 100 meters depth! The ICDP logging team from GFZ Potsdam is now on the rig taking in-situ measurements from the borehole. We will move the barge to Hole B soon after. Photo and post: Christine Y. Chen
