Chief scientist: Jim Robb
Objectives: Purpose of this cruise was coring for geotechnical and sedimentological analysis of features on the continental slope. 32 stations were chosen by Conservation Division Hazard Analysis group within specific lease blocks in the Mid-Atlantic OCS area. 11 additional stations were occupied on the Mid-Atlantic slope and 11 on the North Atlantic (Georges Bank) slope.
