Caryn seamount (36° 42'N, 68° 02'W) was discovered in 1948 during Caryn cruise 1. During the summer of 1963 the Chain (cruise 36) occupied a dredge station on Caryn seamount. Caryn seamount (36° 42'N, 68° 02'W) was discovered in 1948 during Caryn cruise 1. During the summer of 1963 the Chain (cruise 36) occupied a dredge station on Caryn seamount. Manganese nodules, semiconsolidated mud, altered vesicular volcanics, and several glacial erratics were obtained from the western slope of the seamount between depths of about 3950 and 4300 m. The 1963 dredge haul by Chain, the first to obtain volcanic rocks, confirms the volcanic origin of the seamount. Previously, only manganese nodules had been dredged from Caryn, during cruise 21 of Chain.
