Summary: From seismic measurements of Kapp Norvegia and the results of ODP Leg 113 it was possible to create a stratotype for the sedimentation of the eastern continental margin of the Weddell Sea. Fault control of the erosion-appearing Wegener Canyon is suggested. The sedimentary structure of the Explora Escarpment could be revealed by high resolution seismics but not its meaning in a tectonic sense.
