Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Site U1359 (proposed Site WLRIS-04A) is located on the continental rise at 3009 meters below sea level (mbsl). The main objective at Site U1359 was to obtain an expanded record for the late Neogene to Quaternary to provide a history of climate and paleoceanographic variability and to investigate the stability of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet.
