East-west seismic profile through Site NBR-11A; VE: 3.7.
Objectives: The objectives of proposed Site NBR-9A are
1. To determine physical properties through a weakly developed negative polarity reflection at the décollement zone.
2. To determine the physical properties through the accretionary prism, décollement zone, and into the upper portion of the underthrust sediment section at Site 949 where borehole monitoring is successfully underway.
Logging and Downhole: LWD.
