Check out the Rutgers PUFINS blog to see where Miss Martinez and SloMo spent part of their summer!
This 14 day expedition aboard the RV Atlantis allowed the team to collect deep-sea sediment cores off the coast of New Jersey and Nova Scotia.

From the PUFINS site:
Scientists hope to recover cores from the Holocene period (the last ~12,000 years) to reconstruct sea-surface temperatures in the North Atlantic Ocean by examining the changes in alkenones recorded in the fossils found in the sediments. This data will allow researchers to address questions about the “Holocene Conundrum”, an issue hotly debated in the climate community, where cooling trends are observed in the North Atlantic during an otherwise warming world.
