Function

The laboratory technicians provide an essential service on the ship. The Laboratory Officer and two Assistant Laboratory Officers oversee the technical staff to ensure that the scientific objectives of each expedition are reached. These include processing the core, maintening and operating laboratory instruments, and assisting the scientists as needed. The technical staff is also trained in fire and chemical safety procedures so that they can respond to emergencies at sea.
