Port Call(s) Schedule and Shipping Information

Contact: John Van Hyfte at (979) 845-2144 or vanhyfte@iodp.tamu.edu

NOTE: As a result of US Government export and import control regulations, the JRSO is no longer able to forward third-party (i.e., non-IODP owned or controlled) shipments such as laboratory equipment and supplies from College Station to the JOIDES Resolution port call locations. Instead, scientists must ship laboratory equipment directly to the port where their expedition starts and arrange for its return at the end of the expedition, if required. Please contact the Expedition Project Manager of your expedition for more information on where and when shipments should be sent, and what information the JRSO needs before equipment can be allowed on board.
