Figure 4. Satellite-derived gravity field for the Kerguelen Plateau (Sandwell and Smith, 1997) showing important morphotectonic components of the plateau, location of previous ODP drill sites (black stars = sites where igneous basement was recovered), locations of the MD dredge sites (black squares) that recovered basaltic basement, and the proposed drill sites (KIP) for Leg 183. Bathymetric contours (1000 m interval) are from Fisher (pers. comm., 1996).
