Expedition 310 Scientists,2 B. Hamelin,3 and G. Lericolais4

Previous surveys around Tahiti

Before the Sismique Haute Resolution, Bathymetrie et Dragages sur les Pentes Externes des Recifs de Tahiti (SISMITA) cruise in October 2002 (Camoin et al., 2003), bathymetric seafloor mapping and seismic lines at depths >250 m were carried out on the northern side of Tahiti by the Washington in 1982 and SeaBeam data were collected during the Energie Thermique des Mers (ETM) 19 cruise in 1983–1987 (the Jean Charcot) (Voisset, 1990). Available data at depths >500 m around the island include bathymetric and acoustic data collected during the Zone Economique de Polynésie Française (ZEPOLYF; the Atalante) (Sichoix and Bonneville, 1996) and Mission POLYDRAG1, dragage de roches sur la zone ZEPOLYF1 (Bonneville et al., 1998), oceanographic cruises, whereas previous data at depths <250 m were restricted to bathymetric data around Papeete (i.e., in the vicinity of the Faaa drilling sites) (Institut Français de Recherche pour l’Exploitation de la Mer [IFREMER] and Service Hydrographique et Océanographique de la Marine [SHOM]).
