Expedition 363 broke the IODP record with almost 7 km of sediment cores recovered! 9 sites were drilled in the Indo-Pacific Warm Pool. Thanks to everybody onboard of JR and those at IODP, NSF etc! At TAMU Oceanography our goal is to examine the Neogene temperature evolution of the warmest surface seawater on Earth.
