Figure F14. Boreholes >200 m deep drilled into in situ ocean crust by DSDP, ODP, and IODP compared to Hole 1256D. Hole 504B is the only other basement hole to sample a complete extrusive sequence and penetrate into the sheeted dikes. ODP Hole 735B and IODP Hole U1309D, which drilled deeply into gabbros tectonically exposed near ridge-transform intersections on the Southwest Indian Ridge and Mid-Atlantic Ridge, respectively, are shown for comparison. LP = lava pond, Inflate = inflated flows, Sheet and mass flows = sheet and massive flows, TZ = transition zone, Gb = gabbroic rocks, msb = meters subbasement. See Table T4 for description and basis for these subdivisions.
