Alexandre Bandini (Paleontologist, University of Western Australia, Australia) shares an interesting find with Ivan Savov (Sedimentologist, University of Leeds, United Kingdom). Alexandre’s area of expertise is radiolarian microfossils; so how did radiolarians come to be found in a sediment sample with volcanic ash? Such unexpected finds happen frequently aboard the RV JOIDES Resolution and keep the science interesting, gratifying, and challenging. (Credit: Bill Crawford, IODP/TAMU) [Photo ID: exp351_037]
