Seismic Coverage: Site located on Line AI95-149 SP 1520; Line AMG845-03 SP 1290; intersect Line BAS878-18 SP 3380; Intersect at 1900 m off site Ewing SAP1.

Objectives: The objectives of Site APSHE-11A are to:

1. Obtain a record of "pre-glacial" sedimentation in the inner shelf basin.

2. Provide constraints on the history of vertical motion associated with ridge-crest collision.

Drilling Program: Single RCB hole. The alternate site is APSHE-12A.

Logging and Downhole Operations: Standard suites IPLT-DLT and FMS-sonic, plus GHMT.

Nature of Rock Anticipated: Diamicton intercalated with thin hemipelagic layers down to IS1/IS2 boundary. Volcaniclastics sandstones and mudstones below IS1/IS2 boundary.
