The objective of this coring cruise is to continue the investigation of the shallow stratigraphy of the New England Mud Patch, another small shelf basin south of the main Mud Patch study area, and an area along the shelf-edge between Block and Alvin canyons.

Poor weather resulted in several delays throughout the field activity. Upon completion of the cruise, 29 piston cores and 24 trigger cores measuring 130.2 meters of sediment were recovered and logged using the ship-board MSCL. Any cores that were not logged at sea were logged on land using the same MSCL and van on the Quissett Campus. Seismic data collection data and information will be entered as soon as it becomes available.
