What is the JOIDES Resolution (JR)?
JR is a research vessel that drills into the ocean floor to collect and study core samples. Scientists use data from the JR to better understand climate change, geology and Earth’s history. It is a part of the International Ocean Discovery Program and is funded by the National Science Foundation. Dr. LeVay is currently onboard JR (which is so cool). And we are proud to tell you, she’s a homegrown scientist. Yup, she’s from Hastings! (Psst: And when she lived here, she worked at the Museum!) Dr. LeVay researches paleo fossils found in the oceans. Her specific research interests include: Calcareous nannofossil assemblage evolution, paleoecology, paleoproductivity, biostratigraphy, and Late Cretaceous-Cenozoic paleoceanography.
We’ll post more details about this event soon. Mark your calendars today!
