SITE SUMMARIESSite: 1040R-B
Objectives: The objectives of Site 1040R-B are to:
1. Investigate the décollement.
2. Investigate fluid flow within the décollement and underthrust sediments.
3.Install modified CORKs to monitor pressure and temperature and to sample fluids within the décollement sediments.
Drilling Program: Drill without coring to ~300 mbsf then RCB core to ~365 mbsf. Install modified CORK in decollement (~360 mbsf).
Logging and Downhole: Formation temperature measurements (~4 DVTP); no downhole logging is planned at this site.
Nature of Rock Anticipated: Deformed claystones and hemipelagics
