TRANSIT FROM LAS PALMAS TO SITE 1075
The last line in Las Palmas cleared the dock at 2000 hr local time on 12 August 1997. The 3019
nmi sea voyage to proposed Site LCB-1 required 11 days at an average speed of 11.6 kt. The vessel speed was enhanced by favorable currents (Canary and the Equatorial Countercurrent) as well as calm environmental conditions. The JOIDES Resolution crossed the equator at 0° longitude at 0613 hr on 21 August. After a short seismic survey, a Datasonics 354M beacon was deployed at Site 1075 at 1950 hr on 21 August.
