Meet the nightshift core logging team

We have now converted to nightshift and will be describing core for at least the next few days (or nights). The people I work with in the photo are (from left to right) Brad Field from GNS, New Zealand, Chris Fielding from Univ. of Nebraska, Sonia Sondroni from Univ. of Siena, Italy, Kurt Panter from Bowling Green State University, and Larry Krissek from the Ohio State University. Yesterday we had just 3 meters, but it was enough, because we still need to tune in to each others logging habits and streamline the process. The core we got was very interesting with abundant volcanic material. It looks like we are currently drilling through the remnant of a lava flow: a volcanic breccia composed of vesicular basalt.
