Figure 2. Bathymetry of the Kerguelen Plateau (Fisher et al., pers. comm., 1996). Filled stars = previous ODP drill sites that recovered igneous basement; open stars = sites that bottomed in sediment. Closed circles = primary proposed drill sites (KIP) for Leg 183; open circles = alternate proposed drill sites. Seismic lines used to select the sites = black lines with cruise identifiers (GA = Gallieni; MD = Marion Dufresne; RS = rig seismic). Contour interval is 500 m.
