The Offshore New Harbor expedition has been a great success

The Offshore New Harbor Expedition has finished collecting multi-channel seismic data after an extremely successful season.  We exceeded our proposed plan by collecting over 47 km on two lines. The two seismic lines will allow us to evaluate the stratal geometry of sediments deposited in the New Harbor area during the Greenhouse World (>34 million years ago) and tie them into a pre existing borehole (CIROS-1) that recovered upper Eocene strata in the lower portion of the hole. The goal of the Offshore New Harbor Project is to use these seismic profiles to locate the ideal place to drill these Greenhouse World sediments.
