  Description:
    Abstract:
      United States Geological Survey, Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
      Chief Scientists: Bill Winters, Charlie Paull, MBARI. Data
      (vaneshear, penetrometer, torvane, pistoncore, gravitycore)
      of field activity 04020 (K-1-04-NA) in Norwegian Sea, North
      Atlantic from 08/29/2004 to 09/11/2004,
      http://walrus.wr.usgs.gov/infobank/k/k104na/html/k-1-04-na.meta.html.

    Purpose:
      These data and information are intended for science
      researchers, students from elementary through
      college, policy makers, and general public.

    Supplemental_Information:

      Equipment Used -

      vaneshear

      penetrometer

      torvane

      pistoncore

      gravitycore

      Notes -

      Geotechnical-related devices and supplies provided by USGS WH

      Geotech lab (vane shear machine, pocket penetrometer, Torvane).

      Some supplies provided by USGS WH Chem Lab.

      Jumbo piston corer, Giant gravity corer, Multi-sensor Track.

      Scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey s Coastal and

      Marine Geology program participated in a joint cruise with the

      Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) and the Woods Hole

      Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) aboard the RV Knorr. The National

      Science Foundation funded the 14-day cruise to investigate the

      characteristics of sediment surrounding and within the massive

      Storegga submarine slide as a precursor to potential drill sites of

      the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP). The slide, located on

      the Mid-Norwegian margin, is one of the largest known mass-wasting

      events encompassing a movement of approximately 5,600 km3 of

      material, with a headwall scarp 300 km in length with a down slope

      movement of over 800 km. It is thought the current extent of the

      slide may actually be the result of at least three different events

      beginning 50,000 years ago to as recent as 6,000 years ago. Evidence

      suggests that one part of the slide caused a tsunami that impacted

      parts of Norway and Scotland.   Bottom Simulating Reflectors (BSR),

      indicative of gas-hydrate containing sediment overlying gas-charged

      sediment, have been found in seismic-reflection records from the

      slide area. This leads to speculation that hydrate dissociation,

      which releases gas molecules from trapped hydrogen-bonded cages and

      increases pore pressure, may have contributed to the slide. The

      objective of the cruise was to estimate the amount of gas still left

      within sediment under the slide and compare it to the amount of gas

      in the surrounding regions. This information is to be used in

      determining the mechanism that induced the slide as well as proved

      insight into the present conditions of surrounding sediment.

      Representatives from a number of organizations participated in the

      cruise. Charlie Paull, Bill Ussler (co-chief scientists), Joel

      Johnson, Patrick Mitts, and Rendy Keaton from the Monterey Bay

      Aquarium Research Institute; Steve Holbrook (project PI), Jeff

      Nealon, and Hillary Brown from the University of Wyoming; Tom

      Lorenson (USGS CMGP, Menlo Park) and Bill Winters (USGS CMGP, Woods

      Hole); Tessa Hill from the University of California Santa Barbara;

      Julia Frazier from the University of California Santa Cruz; Michelle

      Hatton from Florida State University; Ulla Knudsen from the

      University of Arhus (Denmark); Ellen Roosen, Mike McCarthy, Peter

      Lemmond, Amy Simoneau, and Chrissy van Hilst from WHOI.
