JA Daily Science Report for Expedition 304, 16 December 2004.


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

Latitude: 30° 11.481'N     Longitude: 42° 03.926'W (survey position)    
Water depth: 2588 mbsl


SCIENCE UPDATE: RCB coring at Hole U1310B. As at Site U1309, our initial penetration is agonizingly slow owing to low weight on bit and slow rotation, complicated here by poor hole conditions (specifically material falling into the borehole).
