Team resting on Healy

All in a Day's Work

A team of scientists and technicians enjoy the sun and sea ice at the end of a long day of coring in the Beaufort Sea aboard the U.S. Coast Guard ice breaker Healy. They group is resting against the Jumbo Piston Long Core, an instrument capable of taking cores 100 feet long. Led by principal investigators Lloyd Keigwin (WHOI) and Neal Driscoll (Scripps), the team spent three weeks in September searching for evidence of a catastrophic flood that is thought to have caused a sudden climate change 13,000 years ago.
