TitleTUNES Expedition (TUNE)
AbstractSeamounts and guyots in the western Pacific hold the key to many important problems in geology; goals are to 1) improve understanding of the Pacific plate motion through the geochronological and magnetic study of these seamounts that have probable ages between 90-150ma. 2) study the origin of the South Pacific Isotope and Thermal anomaly. 3) Study the origin of Western Pacific Guyots.
Proposal TitleSeaBeam and dredging on 19 different seamounts and guyots
