The Ocean Drilling Program (ODP) of Texas A&M is dedicated to providing a state-of-the-art research environment for the study of deep ocean marine geology. JOIDES Resolution, the scientific drillship of ODP, contains over 12,000 ft2 of laboratory space in a seven-story modular structure designed to meet the needs of modern marine geological research. This floating laboratory supports a team of about 25 international research scientists on each cruise. A group of 17 technicians operates, maintains, and trains scientists in the use of the scientific equipment aboard the ship. The equipment, both purchased and built, that supports the investigations is described.
