The objectives for Expedition 352 were to drill through the entire volcanic sequence of the Bonin fore arc to

  1. Obtain a high-fidelity record of magmatic evolution during subduction initiation and early arc development,
  2. Test the hypothesis that fore-arc basalt lies beneath boninite and understand chemical gradients within these units and across the transition,
  3. Use drilling results to understand how mantle melting processes evolve during and after subduction initiation, and
  4. Test the hypothesis that the fore-arc lithosphere created during subduction initiation is the birthplace of suprasubduction zone (SSZ) ophiolites.
