JA Daily Science Report for Expedition 308, 19 June 2005     


LOCATION: Site U1324 


SCIENCE UPDATE: MWD/LWD operations at Site U1324 were continued down to the targeted depth of 612 mbsf, which was reached at 0430 hr on June 19. The lithologies encountered were mainly mud, with some intervals of coarser sediments (sand or silt). No over pressured pocket or unit were penetrated, and operations proceeded smoothly. It was decided in view of the hole condition that wireline logging with the sonic tool, WST tool and gamma ray tool would be attempted in Hole U1324A. Before wireline logging operations could begin, the MWD/LWD assembly had to disassembled, a free fall funnel was emplaced, and the hole was re-entered with a logging/cementing BHA. As of 2400 hr, the logging string was at 534 mbsf in Hole U1324A and wireline logging was underway.
