On 7 July 2018, members of the Oman Drilling Project boarded the drilling vessel Chikyu in Shimizu port, Japan, to begin logging cores collected during Phase Two fieldwork, which took place from November 2017-February 2018. The team will spend the next two months living and working on board the ship, which houses one of the best core logging facilities in the world.
This summer’s core logging activities will mirror last summer’s successful work when scientists from a variety of disciplines spent two months aboard the Chikyu, performing detailed, IODP-standard logging of 1500m of core.
