Abstract:

This report discusses the general criteria for choosing a site for ATOC cabled sources. In particular, the process of selecting the California site is reviewed. Two possible locations are considered, Pioneer Seamount and Sur Ridge. The Sur Ridge site has been selected because a requisite marine mammal research program can be conducted there for less cost.
