It’s Not Just the Core that Tells the Hole Story

Deep Earth Academy/Consotrium for Ocean leadership

Lesson Plan Overview: 

Students read about “down-hole logging” technology, in which instruments are lowered from the drilling ship into the hole after cores have been removed to measure physical properties that reveal more about sea floor sediments and rocks. They then examine sample logs to note patterns and interpret the data.
