Site 1165 is situated on the continental rise offshore from Prydz Bay. It targets mixed sediment-drift channel-levee sediments of the central Wild Drift, an elongate sediment body formed by the interaction of sediment supplied from the shelf and westward-flowing currents on the continental rise. The site is in 3525 m of water and was selected to provide a record of sedimentation that extends back to the onset of contour current-influenced deposition on the rise. The site location provides a record of ocean and ice sheet interactions (i.e., glacial-interglacial fluctuations of grounded ice within Prydz Bay) throughout the Neogene. Drilling at this site would also provide information on the timing of the major change in continental rise sedimentation denoted by regional unconformity in addition to evidence of reasons for the change. The depth of the site is approximately 1020 mbsf. The ultimate objective was to obtain a proximal continental-rise record of Antarctic glacial and interglacial periods for comparison with sites around Antarctica and with those near Northern Hemisphere ice sheets.
