We opened and sampled the last cores!
We’re now really nearing the end of the sample party. One of the IODP traditions involves the making of an alternative logo by one of the participants. Our logo was made by Ian Marshall and includes the owl that visited us at the Landsort Deep station during the cruise. It’s quite different from the official logo (see the first blog post below).
Another tradition is a group photograph of the whole science party.
Two more days to finish all the reports and then we’ll say goodbye. We will meet again several times over the coming years to discuss results!
