Mobilisation: Mission-specific platforms are especially chosen to fullfil particular scientific objectives. In many cases this requires modifications to get the most appropriate platform.
The chosen vessel is the RRS James Cook carrying seabed rock drills, RD2 (BGS) and MeBo (MARUM, University of Bremen), and was mobilised in Southampton (UK) from 16 to 26 October, 20015. A media visit to the RRS James Cook was organised on 23 October  in Southampton.
