Figure 1. Bathymetric map (in meters) of sites cored during Leg 162, which departed Edinburgh, Scotland, on 8 July and returned to Reykjavik, Iceland, on 3 September, 1995. Sites 980-984 form a depth transect and a surface-water transect from warm to cool areas of the North Atlantic. Sites 907, 985, and 987, together with previous ODP sites, form a transect from temperate areas off Norway to the polar waters off Greenland. Site 986 is positioned off the location of the Svalbard/Barents Sea Ice Sheet in the European Arctic, and Site 987 off the Greenland Ice Sheet.
