Scientific Drilling Vessel
JOIDES Resolution

The world’s most successful core
sampling research vessel

The mission of the JOIDES Resolution is to explore the
Earth below the oceans of the world to investigate the
origin and the evolution of the Earth. The ship is a 
dynamically positioned non-riser drilling/coring vessel
capable of operating in water depths of 7,000 meters,
and with holes cored to depths of 2,000 meters below
the seafloor.

Secrets of the Earth
In the documentary below the scientists onboard try to
understand how the Earth will respond to the climate
changes. The crucial question is how much the global
temperature will increase with the massive release of
carbon dioxide.
