  • Andreassen Karin
3 February 2023


The cruise was a part of the Centre of Excellence for Gas Hydrate, Environment and Climate (CAGE) at UiT ‐ The Arctic University of Norway.

The cruise had the following scientific objectives:

Geomorphic mapping of seafloor features at the Yermak Plateau, as far north as possible aiming at identifying ice flow orientations.
Improve the seismic stratigraphy along the western Svalbard continental margin, using the ODP holes 910C and 912A of the Yermak Plateau and the ODP hole 986 west of Svalbard.
Investigate fluid-flow features related to gas hydrate bearing sediments

The cruise may be known as: CAGE17_5
