Peter Clift (Co-Chief Scientist, Louisiana State University, USA) reviews the summary core descriptions that are displayed on the visual core description (VCD) sheets. Each VCD is a graphic representation of each core, and includes a core image, graphic lithology, symbols depicting sedimentary structures, physical properties data, and a brief descriptive summary. The VCDs are an invaluable resource for scientists after the end of the expedition, when the cores will be shipped and stored at Kochi Core Center in Kochi, Japan.
