ODP Technical Note 10


A. Introduction

A. Introduction

The CORK is a long-term, seafloor observatory intended to allow a monitored and accessible borehole to return to its pre-drilling state. The reprinted manuscript following this section, which appeared in the Leg 139 Initial Reports volume (Davis, Mottl, Fisher, et al., 1992), describes CORK development, deployment, and interpretation of preliminary data in some detail. A more complex treatment of CORK post-emplacement operations and data interpretation will appear in the Leg 139 Scientific Results volume, due for publication in the summer of 1994. Additional CORK operations conducted during Leg 146 are summarized briefly below, and in Table VI-I.
