CASEIS Cruise: Pourquoi pas?

I am preparing for a research cruise offshore of the Lesser Antilles.

I will be posting updates from my trip here. This blog is also linked to my website at http://earthjay.com

The chief scientist is Nathalie Feuillet from The Institut de Physique Du Globe De Paris http://www.ipgp.fr/en/user/1243.

Our goal is to find turbidites so that we might establish a prehistoric record of earthquakes along this subduction zone.

The ship is named Pourquoi pas? and here is the website for this ship: http://flotte.ifremer.fr/fleet/Presentation-of-the-fleet/Vessels/Deep-sea-vessels/Pourquoi-pas

More later. I need to complete the grading for the Spring Term.

Here is a map that shows earthquakes of magnitude 6.0 and larger from 1900-2016.

Here is the kml file I used to create this map:
