Objectives: The objectives of Site PAT-19A are to:

2. Determine the paleolatitude of the drill site

3. Determine the rate of accumulation and types of biogenic sediments

4. Collect an LPTM section

Drilling Program: One APC/XCB to basement; second and third APC/XCB if time available.

Logging and Downhole: Triple combo, MGT, and FMS-sonic if time is available.

Nature of Rock Anticipated: Soft sediments except perhaps some chert-chalk in basal layers. Basement is midocean ridge basalt.
