Chief scientist, Dr. Donald Forsyth (Brown University) talking with Co-chief scientist, Dr. Dayanthie Weeraratne (CSUN) about the previous OBS recovery on the back deck of the Kilo Moana - just after the setting sun. Our cruise expedition, named the PLATE experiment (Pacific Lithosphere Asthenosphere Thickness Experiment), objectives are to study how tectonic plates are made and cool with time and age. This particular project focuses on some of the oldest seafloor in the world (150 Million years old) in the NW Pacific ocean.
