Objectives: The objectives of Site ENT-06A are to penetrate a major OOST in the mid-slope region to:

1. Sample the OOST for fluids

2. Date an older part of the prism

3. Determine the fluid flow paths and chemical gradients

4. Determine the spatial distribution and temporal progression of accretionary prism deformation

Drilling Program: APC, XCB, and RCB

Logging: None

Downhole Tools:
APC core orientation, Adara and DVTP temperature, WSTP water samples

Nature of Rock Anticipated: Interbedded hemipelagic mud/silty-sandy turbidites
