Abstract

During Leg 128, a new electrical resistivity experiment was conducted at Site 794 in the Japan Sea. The experiment utilizes as a source a vertical current dipole that extends from the sea surface to the bottom, and vertical electric fields caused by the source current were measured in a hole drilled into the sediment layer. Results of this experiment and the Schlumberger standard logging data obtained during Legs 127 and 128 revealed a highly conductive structure in the top several kilometers of the oceanic crust in the Yamato Basin. -Authors
