Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Site U1393 (proposed Site CARI-02C; 16°43.13′N, 62°5.06′W; 914 meters below sea level [mbsl]) is located close to the Soufrière Hills Volcano on Montserrat (7.4 nmi [13.7 km] from Point Shoe Rock, at the southeast tip of Montserrat) (Fig. F1). The ongoing eruption of the Soufrière Hills Volcano on Montserrat started in 1995. Activity has included lava dome growth, pyroclastic flows from dome collapse, explosive activity with tephra fall and pumice flows, flank collapse with debris avalanches, and volcanic blasts. More than 70% of erupted material from the ongoing eruption has been transported to the sea (Le Friant et al., 2009, 2010; Trofimovs et al., 2006). The rapid deposition of volcanic material into the sea has caused small tsunamis (Herd et al., 2005).
