Introduction

This addendum to the International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 374 Scientific Prospectus details additional alternate sites not presented in the original prospectus. It utilizes data collected during early 2017 by the research vessel (R/V) OGS Explora. Additional sites based on archive data are also provided to identify sites in regions with very low sea ice risk near the beginning and end of the expedition.
