Expedition 310 Scientists2


During Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expedition 310, cores were recovered from 37 holes at 22 sites (Sites M0005–M0026) (Table T1), with an overall conventionally calculated recovery of 57.47%. Water depths at the sites ranged from 41.6 to 117.5 m, and cores were recovered from 41.6 to 161.8 meters below sea level (mbsl). The initial strategy of coring along profiles was applied, although the location of some proposed drill sites was slightly changed because of difficulties in locating and operating at some sites. Three transects were drilled in two regions: Tiarei (inner ridge and outer ridge sites) and Maraa (eastern and western transects). Other drilling areas include marginal sites at Tiarei and Faaa sites. All new sites were drilled within areas approved by the IODP Environmental Protection and Safety Panel (EPSP). Logging was conducted in 10 holes at 7 sites.
