Objectives: The objectives of Site ENT-06A are to penetrate a major OOST in the midslope 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 the accretionary prism deformation

Drilling Program: APC/XCB and/or RCB coring

Logging and Downhole Tools: LWD, DVTP, and WSTP

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