GI Professor Bernard Coakley blogs for The New York Times on research cruise

September 19, 2011

Professor Bernard Coakley is aboard the research vessel Marcus G. Langseth with aims to collect multi-channel seismic reflection data across the transition from the Chukchi Shelf to the Chukchi Borderland. Coakley and the crew will conduct research in the Chukchi Sea until early October and hope the data they collect will provide insight on how the Amerasia Basin formed during the Mesozoic era, the age of the dinosaurs.
