Tour of the JOIDES Resolution

May 2013 — Victoria

PCIGR staff and students had the unique opportunity to tour the scientific drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution, docked in Victoria, BC.

See photos here.

The tour started near the derrick on the “catwalk,” where the 9-m-long cores are first received after being brought up from the seafloor. The group then viewed many of the scientific areas, including the petrophysics lab, core lab, microscopy/paleontology lab, and chemistry/microbiology lab. We also got to visit the galley, gym, lounge/movie room, and lastly the ship’s bridge.
