JA Daily Science Report for Expedition 304, 10 December 2004.


LOCATION:  Site U1310 (prospectus site AMHW-01A)

Latitude: 30° 11.481'N     Longitude: 42° 03.926'W (survey position)    
Water depth: 2584 mbsl


SCIENCE UPDATE: A subsea camera survey of the Site U1310 area (Prospectus Site AMHW-01A) revealed about 2000 square meters of smooth, featureless sediment on a local high sloping gently east to west, with rare meter-sized outcrops of breadcrust-textured rock interpreted to be basalt. The location of this site is at the coordinates of the final position of a submersible dive that recovered pillow basalt fragments and documented 1-2 m high scarps of pillow basalt.
