1 Dates for expeditions may be adjusted pending non-IODP activities.
2 The start date reflects the initial port call day. The vessel will sail when ready.
3 Transit total is the estimated transit to and from port call and does not include transit between sites.
4 Also includes Proposal 845-APL, Agulhas Current LGM Density.
5 Also includes Proposal 693-APL, South Chamorro Seamount CORK.
6 Complementary Project Proposal (CPP) contingent on substantial financial contribution outside of normal IODP funding.
7 Will be implemented in FY18 but will not be placed in the expedition sequence until the 2016 JOIDES Resolution Facility Board meeting.
