Figure F8. SCREECH line 2MCS from the central Newfoundland continental rise seaward to oceanic crust east of Anomaly M0, illustrated in three sections. Location is shown in Figure F6. A. Lower continental rise. The basement block at center is the landward side of the Flemish Hinge and is capped by probably lower Mesozoic, prerift sediments. Major deep-basin reflections and seismic sequences to the east are identified. B. Lowermost continental rise and western margin of the abyssal plain with Sites 1276 and 1277, major reflections, seismic sequences, and magnetic anomaly locations identified. C. Seaward portion over the abyssal plain, with Horizon Au and location of Anomaly M0 indicated. CMP = common midpoint, Unc. = unconformity.
