Expeditions 317 and 319 (Pacific equatorial age transect [PEAT]) are derived from the original Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) drilling Proposal 626-Full2 (available for download from the Equatorial Pacific expeditions page at iodp.tamu.edu/scienceops/expeditions/equatorial_pacific.html). Expeditions 317 and 319 are scheduled for the JOIDES Resolution, operating under contract with the U.S. Implementing Organization (USIO).
Expedition 317 is currently scheduled to begin in Honolulu, Hawaii, on 19 May 2008 and to end in Astoria, Oregon, on 18 July 2008. However, this plan includes remedial cementing operation at two of the Juan de Fuca sites (IODP Expedition 301), and the scientists from Expedition 317 will disembark the ship in San Diego, California, on or about 7 July 2008. A total of 27 days will be available for the drilling, coring, and downhole measurements described in this report.
Expedition 319 is currently scheduled to begin in Tomakomai, Japan, on 17 September 2008 and to end in Papeete, Tahiti, on 17 November 2008. However, scientists will board the ship in Honolulu, Hawaii. A total of 32 days will be available for the drilling, coring, and downhole measurements described in this report.
At the time of publication, the ship's schedule could still be modified and readers should refer to the current detailed JOIDES Resolution's schedule available at iodp.tamu.edu/scienceops. Further details on the JOIDES Resolution can be found at iodp.tamu.edu/publicinfo/drillship.html.
