The JOIDES Resolution set sail from Townsville yesterday beginning IODP Expedition 317: exploring the tectonic and climate history of northwestern Zealandia (27 July to 26 September).

Rupert Sutherland and Jerry Dickens are the co-chiefs and the science team includes three New Zealanders – Hugh Morgans, Kristina Pascher (honorary), and Wanda Stratford. There is also an Australian Outreach Officer on board, Deb Beamish, who is keen to run outreach activities with New Zealand schools, museums, etc.
