169S Prospectus


The objectives of ODP coring in Saanich Inlet are to

Approximately 100 to 125 m of Holocene diatomaceous silts and clays and upper Pleistocene glaciomarine muds will be cored with the advanced hydraulic piston corer (APC) to refusal at the two sites. Both sites will be triple APC cored. Only the A hole from each site will be measured using the multi sensor track (MST), split, and photographed on board. The B and C holes will be measured using the MST during Leg 169 and returned to the Gulf Coast Repositiory for further work. Temperature measurements will be made in the lowermost part of Site SI-02B if time permits.
