Jian Xu (Physical Properties Specialist, Northwest University, China) and Jennifer Wurtzel (Physical Properties Specialist, Australian National University, Australia) run whole round core sections on the Special Task Multisensor Logger (STMSL). This track is used to quickly measure bulk density and magnetic susceptibility of sediments immediately after the cores are cut into sections. These data are used by the stratigraphic correlators to determine if we need to make drilling adjustments (i.e., drill ahead a few meters without coring) to ensure that the next core covers a gap between cores in the previous hole.
