Figure F13. Uninterpreted and interpreted high-resolution multichannel seismic Profile WEGA 26 across the continental rise (proposed Site WLRIS-04A). Profile shows the drilling target to obtain a high-resolution Neogene record that should provide insights to the age and the nature of the onset of the large sediment supply to the continental rise (i.e., strata below and above Unconformity WL-U5) and the response of continental rise sedimentation to the transition from a wet-based to a cold-based and more persistent ice sheet. See Figure F5 for location of profile. SP = shotpoint.
