Proposed Site GOAL-17B

Priority: Primary
Position: 59°30.4398′N, 143°2.7378′W
Water depth (mbrf): 738
Target drilling depth (mbsf): 1032
Approved maximum penetration (mbsf): 1045
Survey coverage: Inline GOA2503 (CDP 576), Xline STEEP07B (CDP 2165) (navigation and bathymetric maps Figs. AF9, AF11; seismic profiles Figs. AF7, AF10)
Objective: • Tectonic and climate history of the slope

• See “Drilling and coring strategy” and Table T2
Downhole measurements program: • Wireline logging with triple combo, FMS-sonic, and VSI tool strings
• See “Downhole measurements strategy” and Table T3
Anticipated lithology: Mud, silt, sand, volcanic ash, ice-rafted debris, diamict
