Drilling of Sediments from the Southern Alaska Continental Margin: 1
– Interactions of Tectonics, Climate, and Sedimentation
Scientific Prospectus>> Click
27 May – 27 Jul., 2013
Based on IODP Proposal 686-Full, this expedition will examine the ties between tectonically driven orogenic processes, glacial processes, and north Pacific and global climate by obtaining high-resolution late-Cenozoic sedimentary records across the southern Alaska continental margin. The primary objectives are (1) Document the tectonic response of an active orogenic system to Pliocene and Mid-Pleistocene climate change, (2) to establish the timing of Neogene advance and retreat phases of the Southern Alaskan Cordilleran Ice Sheet, (3) to determine the depositional history and glacial record of margin sediments, and (4) to document the behavior of the geomagnetic field at high temporal resolution to assess processes that control secular variation and geomagnetic polarity reversals.
