    One way to combat coastal subsidence is to watch, to listen, and to learn from what locals have been doing and saying all along.

The @joides_resolution spent some time today "tripping pipe" - bringing a stand of pipe (30 m long) back on to the ship to be stored in the pipe racker. One of my favorite parts is watching how this solid pipe bends as it is raised/lowered. #EXP390 #DrGw390
The @joides_resolution stairwell is a stop when I take groups on a Zoom tour. These logos are winners of a design contest held each expedition, drawn by people on the ship. I share the story of the tangled sea turtle rescue with students - never fails, they cheer and applaud! #EXP390 #DrGw390
Had a fascinating tour of parts of @joides_resolution I hadn't yet seen, going deep into the ship. While walking by the propulsion system, someone pointed this out to me. Now I need to investigate the Philly connection to scientific ocean drilling! #EXP390 #DrGw390
As the sun sets on the South Atlantic Ocean today (view from helideck on @joides_resolution), I think back to a question I was asked during a ship-to-shore broadcast. One young 4th grader came up to the Zoom camera in their classroom and asked what you do on the ship if you have a food allergy. I had an immediate answer, as I'm allergic to tomatoes and the staff in the galley have gone above-and-beyond in accommodating me and informing me of any items with tomatoes. More importantly, for that young student to ask that question, shows me that they were trying to figure out if they could be on a ship with a food allergy. For a moment, I believe that they were trying to see themself as being a scientist on a ship at sea. My heart is glowing like the Sun at this moment....
And, we are in transit! Heading east, off to our final site of scientific ocean drilling for @joides_resolution #EXP390. We are coming to the end of Week 6 in our 8-week expedition. But the ocean is still greeting us with stormy weather, waves, swell, heave - you name it. I couldn't take my ship tours outdoors today - too wet, too hazardous. Safety first on the high seas! #DrGw390
