The JOIDES Resolution is the scientific ocean drilling vessel of the US part of the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program. My day job is working as the Deputy Director of one of the groups that make up this program. Our ship has been in the Singapore shipyard for about two years undergoing a complete renovation. The ship left Singapore in late January and has been conducting sea trials to test out all the new systems. It came into Honolulu last week and is now off on the first full expedition. I shot these pictures as the ship was coming into Honolulu harbor and during the first day of port call. It was about the only really sunny day of my visit. I'm working on shots taken on the ship and hope to have those up soon.
