The JOIDES Resolution continued Expedition 354 (Bengal Fan) this month. The expedition is drilling a transect of sites across the middle Bengal Fan to obtain a Neogene and late Paleogene record of Himalayan orogeny and climate. The objectives are to investigate interactions among the growth of the Himalaya and Tibet, the development of the Asian monsoon, and processes affecting the carbon cycle and global climate.
