Objectives: The objectives of Site 1043R are to:

1. Investigate the décollement.

2. Investigate fluid flow within the décollement and underthrust sediments.

3.Install modified CORK to monitor pressure and temperature and to sample fluids within the décollement.

Drilling Program: Same as Site 1040R

Logging and Downhole: Same as Site 1040R

Nature of Rock Anticipated: Deformed claystones and hemipelagics.
