Paleomagnetism Field Photos The researchers from the lab have been working across the world. The gallery below is a collection of pictures taken during some of their field trips. Meert team camping along the shores of Lake Balkash, Kazakhstan. A core (9.5 m long) coming off the drill-floor of the R/V Joides Resolution during IODP Expedition 303 to the North Atlantic. Second from the left is Dr. Channell. Dr. Meert drilling Cambrian limestones at Lesser Karatau, Kazakhstan. Standing right on the Equator during a 2003 field trip to Ecuador, from left to right: Drs.
