After we describe it, samples are taken from the half core for further study. Scientists on the day shift have a "flagging" party where they put little flags in the core at the locations where they would like to have a small piece of the core. The curatorial team then later cuts the samples out of the core.
The ANDRILL website is now also Live. Science reports are updated weekly and the next one will give an overview of the findings of the whole team. Check it out at http://www.andrill.org/
