Proposed Site GOAL-16B

Priority: Alternate
Position: 58°46.1750′N, 144°29.7917′W
Water depth (mbrf): 3701
Target drilling depth (mbsf): 986
Approved maximum penetration (mbsf): 1100
Survey coverage: Inline GOA3201 (CDP 571), Xline GOA3202 (CDP 445) (navigation and bathymetric maps Figs. AF12, AF13; seismic profiles Figs. AF14, AF15)
Objective: • Tectonic and climate history of upper Surveyor Fan and origin of Surveyor Fan sequence boundaries
• Provenance of unroofed sediments
Drilling and coring program: • Hole A: APC to ~200 mbsf with non-magnetic core barrels and core orientation
• Hole B: APC to ~200 mbsf with non-magnetic core barrels
• Hole C: APC to ~200 mbsf with non-magnetic core barrels
• Hole D: APC/XCB to 986 mbsf
• See Drilling and coring strategy and Table T3
Downhole measurements program: • Hole A: APCT-3 (SET if needed) formation temperature measurements
• Hole D: wireline logging with triple combo, FMS-sonic, VSI, and Magnetic Properties tool strings
• See Downhole measurements strategy and Table T3
Anticipated lithology: Mud (possibly diatom rich), silt, fine sand, volcanic ash, ice-rafted debris
