The procedures and tools employed in drilling operations and in the various shipboard laboratories of the R/V JOIDES Resolution are documented here for IODP Expedition 371. This information applies only to shipboard work described in the Expedition reports section of the Expedition 371 Proceedings of the International Ocean Discovery Program volume. Methods for shore-based analyses of Expedition 371 samples and data will be described in separate individual publications. This introductory section of the methods chapter describes procedures and equipment used for drilling, coring, core handling, sample registration, computation of depth for samples and measurements, and the sequence of shipboard analyses. Subsequent methods sections describe laboratory procedures and instruments in more detail. Unless otherwise noted, all depths in this volume refer to the core depth below seafloor, Method A (CSF-A), depth scale.
