TitleWESTWARD Expedition (WEST)
Abstractthe main purpose of the Ridge Flux Project is to observe and monitor the energy and mass flux from asthenosphere to earths surface environment on the mid-oceanic ridge and to compare the active ridge crest processes of the mid-oceanic ridge with those of marginal basin systems.
Proposal TitleInternational Cooperative Research on the Energy and Mass Flux of Ridge Crests (Ridge Flux Project).
