No, this is not a bowl of ice cream—it is actually much more exciting! Calcareous nannofossil paleontologist Claire Routledge (Florida State University, USA) and planktonic foraminifer paleontologist Stephan Steinke (University of Bremen, Germany) examine a sample from the first core on deck. This material was taken from the core catcher at the bottom of the core. The paleontologists will examine the microfossils within to determine the age of the sediment.
