JOIDES Resolution Tour 1985–2005
JOIDES Resolution Facilities
The heart of this floating scientific research center features seven stories of laboratory facilities. The ship dedicates more than 12,000 square feet of space to scientific laboratories and equipment. The laboratories contain facilities for studies in sedimentology, paleontology, geochemistry, geophysics, petrology, paleomagnetism, physical properties, and downhole measurements. Computer systems and photographic facilities lend critical technical support. A marine geophysics laboratory produces digital, single-channel seismic reflection profiles while the ship is under way.
