JA Daily Science Report for Expedition 308, 06 June 2005
LOCATION: Site U1319
SCIENCE UPDATE: We arrived at the location of Site U1319 (proposed Site BT4-4A) at 1315 on June 6th. Preparations were then made for the deployment of the T2P probe, an experimental probe measuring in-situ temperature and pressure in the formation. Pressure and temperature were measured continuously from the surface to the mudline, with two stops (500 meters and 1000 meters below rig floor) to calibrate for pressure. After recovering the probe, pressure at 1390 mbsl read 2026 psi and temperature was about 4 C, and the test was considered a success. As of 2400 no core was on deck.
