A JOIDES Resolution tradition: Styrofoam cups (or, in this case, bowls) are decorated by scientists and technical staff. These bowls are secured in a mesh laundry bag and lashed to the subsea camera frame. When the camera is lowered to the seafloor, the cups/bowls shrink as a result of the increased pressure.
