We’re back aboard the JOIDES Resolution, or JR. That’s the ocean drilling research vessel in the northeast Pacific that I profiled last episode. But this time the educators and artists onboard who are doing outreach to the public have gone all over the JR, and recorded sounds and interviews. This episode is theirs, and it captures a bit of what it’s like to live aboard a massive research vessel for 2 months straight. Have a listen.
Special thanks to Lisa Crowder, one of the JR’s assistant lab officers, for lending her gift of voice and song to the end of this episode.
