Objectives: The objectives of MAT-13D are to:
1.Augment Pleistocene upper slope chronostratigraphy acquired as a result of Leg 150 drilling.
2.Sample the expanded and complete Pleistocene section presumed to compose the Hudson Apron, at a point of physical continuity seaward of coeval clinoforms beneath the outermost shelf.
3.Calibrate the age and facies of Pleistocene sequence stratigraphic horizons (e.g., p
6) identified on the upper slope in the vicinity of Leg 150 sites (Mountain, Miller,
Blum et al., 1994).
Drilling Program: Single APC/XCB to TD.
Logging and Downhole Operations: Quad, GHMT, Logging While Drilling**, VSP.**
Nature of Rock Anticipated: Sands, silts, and clays; occasional debris flows.
Seismic line for 13D
**if not run at MAT-8B/-9B
