The group spent a majority of their 12-hour days working alongside four instructors and ship’s crew during IODP Expedition 341S, off the coast of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The instructional team guided the participants through an exploration of seafloor core samples to learn about faults and subduction zones, as well as microbes from the deep biosphere.
