Objectives: The objectives of Site ACE-1c are to determine the:

1.sedimentology, biostratigraphy, and vertical motion history of the northern margin;

2. nature of basement and the pre-rift history; and

3. basement stress orientation, permeability, temperature, physical properties, and fluid composition.

Drilling Program: APC, XCB, RCB.

Logging and Downhole Operations: Triple-combo Geophysics, FMS-sonic, GHMT (if on board), BHTV in basement, temperature (Adara, DVTP/WSTP).

Nature of Rock Anticipated: Quaternary hemipelagic sediments, Paleogene volcanics and volcaniclastics.
