Spotlight 4. JOIDES Resolution

Mitch Malone Brad Clement
First Paragraph

The riserless JOIDES Resolution (JR) is currently one of three scientific drilling platforms used by the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP). It was the sole drilling vessel for the Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) and was later used, along with the Japanese drilling vessel Chikyu and other mission-specific drilling platforms, throughout the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program.
