Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Site U1394 (proposed Site CARI-03C; 16°38.43′N, 62°2.29′W; 1115 meters below sea level [mbsl]) is located off the island of Montserrat (~13 nmi [24 km] from Point Shoe Rock, at the southeast tip of Montserrat) (Fig. F1). Site survey data obtained for Site U1394 revealed the presence of chaotic deposits interpreted as debris avalanche deposits (Deposit 2 and underlying Deposit 8) and indicated that drilling could penetrate through multiple units of debris avalanche Deposit 2 (Lebas et al., 2011; Watt et al., 2012). We planned to drill 244 m through volcanic and biogenic sediment with intercalated chaotic debris avalanche Deposit 2.
