Equipment Used
STRATA FORmation on Margins (STRATAFORM)
was initiated in 1994 by the Office of Naval Research as a coordinated
multi-investigator study of continental-margin sediment transport
processes and stratigraphy. The program is investigating the stratigraphic
signature of the shelf and slope portions of continental margins, and
hopes to provide better understanding of the sedimentary record and
better prediction of strata.
The objective of the cruise was to execute a statistical
variability study of the area by collecting multiple samples at
individual locations.  Emphasis was also placed on collecting several
deep water cores.
Information to be Derived
cores were analyzed using a multi-sensor core logger, yielding P-wave velocity, 
wet bulk density, and magnetic susceptibility data.
158 box cores and 58 piston cores.
