Figure 2. A. Hand-contoured 100-m contour bathymetric map of Site 735 showing the location of Hole 735B (modified from Dick et al., 1991a). SeaBeam tracks hand-shifted by eye to eliminate conflicts in the data. Solid lines indicate actual data, while hatched lines show inferred contours. Contour interval is 250 m. Small solid dots and arrows indicate the starting point and approximate track of dredge hauls. Large solid dots show the location of Sites 735 and 732 (just north of the contoured area on the crest of the median tectonic ridge). Filled circles indicate the approximate proportions of rock types recovered in each dredge: + = gabbro, white = basalt and diabase, light stipples = greenstone, and heavy stipples = serpentinized peridotite. B. Hand contoured bathymetric map of the eastern rift mountains north of the SW Indian Ridge axis showing crust of the same age as Site 735 and the conjugate position of Hole 735B (735B') on the counter-lithospheric flow line, based on magnetic anomalies and plate reconstruction. This conjugate site is the location of SWIR 6, the final backup site for Leg 176, where the volcanic carapace originally overlying Hole 735B is preserved intact.
