Explore how scientific ocean drilling provides a window into Earth’s past. From sampling the ocean floor, we gain tremendous insights into how the dinosaurs went extinct, what kind of life exists deep beneath the sea, and what the climate was like millions of years ago. Discover the variety of educational resources utilizing this data and available to you. Delve into how we know what we know! Receive free classroom resources.

Discoveries made through scientific ocean drilling revolutionized our understanding of Earth System Processes. From confirmation of sea floor spreading in the late 1960s and the asteroid impact 65 million years ago, through evidence for Earth’s changing climate and its influence on Life, to today’s ongoing expeditions around the globe, the “JR” has been one of the most successful platforms for conducting research. Embedding science educators aboard the ship during expeditions and transits has also produced a wealth of resources that can be shared with your students to inform and excite them about our Planet.
