172 Scientific Prospectus

Map showing the outline of the Blake Outer Ridge gas hydrate field (stippled) for comparison with prospective Leg 172 core sites (Fig. 2). Gas hydrate is typically detected by the presence of a bottom-simulating reflector (BSR) on seismic reflection profiles. The gas hydrate outline is based on mapping the presence of BSRs (from Dillon and Paull, 1983; modified after Paull, Matsumoto, Wallace et al., in press).
