IODP Expedition 335

Superfast Spreading Rate Crust 4

Daily Science Report for 3 June 2011

LOCATION: Panama anchorage

SCIENCE UPDATE: The vessel arrived at the Panama anchorage in the early morning, ending the transit from Site 1256 and Expedition 335. Four passengers and one USIO personnel arrived on a taxi boat. All scientists and four USIO personnel disembarked the vessel on two taxi boat trips. Transfers to and from the vessel were completed by noon. Hours before departure, the science party left the following message of appreciation to all aboard:

Dear Captain Terry, Sam, Ron and all aboard JOIDES Resolution,

In a few short hours the Expedition 335 Science party will leave the JR and return to our families and homes. But we will leave our home for the past 6 weeks. All in the science party will remember with respect, the professional dedication and just shear hard work from the shipboard teams that went into ensuring this cruise was success.

Hole 1256D is the best chance for understanding some of the most fundamental processes operating on our planet; to understand how the great tectonic plates are formed. Expedition 335 has saved and resuscitated Hole 1256D, cleaned the hole of choking cuttings, and preserved it for future expeditions. We will be back!

Thank you to all aboard for your kind welcome, determined efforts, and good spirits.

Enjoy the Canal transit and the cruise to (and disembarkation in!) Curacao.

Safe passage always,

Expedition 335 Science Party
