13 Oct     Exploring the Earth with Ocean Drilling, part 2

Downhole Logging with Gilles Guerin

The 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 July, seventeen teachers--including E2C founder Mike Passow--and twelve IODP researchers and staff members participated in the "School of Rock 2007: Exploring Ocean Cores at the Gulf Coast Repository." (If you want, you can read the official press release.)

In our September E2C workshop, LDEO Borehole Research Group scientist  Jill Weinberger, E2C Organizer Dr. Michael
J. Passow, and others shared research about gas hydrates, along with  selected educational activities and materials developed by the first and second SOR participants.

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.
