The JOIDES Resolution departed Auckland at 08:00 and started its ~3.5 day voyage to the first drill site, the second northernmost seamount of the Louisville seamount chain. Science meetings and core description training resumed shortly after departure. The Curator and Expedition Project Manager conducted “core flow walk trough” tours for all scientists including a discussion of shipboard sampling strategies. Sedimentologists and Paleontologists learned to use the SampleMaster application to record samples that are taken for shipboard studies. First lab groups submitted their draft for the “Methods” chapter of the cruise report.
