Request Samples from IODP Japan Trench Fast Drilling Project (JFAST) Expedition
Sample requests are being accepted for the JFAST expedition now. JFAST is targeting the near-trench fault zone and is planning on recovering core near the region of extremely large (~50 m) slip during the Tohoku Earthquake. As an IODP project, samples are open to the whole community with priority generally given to shipboard scientists. The ship sets sail April 1.
