Exploring the Earth
with Ocean Drilling, part 2
Earth2Class Workshops this Fall feature two special themes: the “IODP
(Integrated Ocean Drilling Program) 'School of Rock' Workshops” and the
“Lamont Contributions to the IPY (International Polar Year).”
In this second SOR/BRG Workshop, Gilles Guerin will explain how strings of instruments lowered down the borehole reveal much more about the properties and histories of sea floor sediments and rocks. Gilles earned his PhD here at Columbia through his research into geophysical signatures of marine sediment processes. He has been the Logging Scientist on eight JOIDES Resolution voyages, as well as on other expeditions.
We will also have an opportunity to pilot test an educational activity about downhole logging that Gilles and Mike created for the SOR, as well as more opportunities to work through some of the classroom activities developed by JOI Learning and the School of Rockers.
