The article offers information about the New Jersey Shallow Shelf Expedition 313 which is funded by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), which examines core samples from 35 miles off the country's coast. It mentions that the expedition will collect cores from sediments that are embedded around 24 million years ago which is a time of significant sea-level fluctuation caused by climate change. It affirms that the project's main goal includes recognizing sea level changes.
