WAHI02BD-024FF-06 (core, free-fall)
0-5 cm (core, free-fall)
SS at 5cm. Dark grayish brown biosiliceous clay with Fe oxides. Manganese nodule at top (now removed). Lower contact mottled/reworked. Quaternary with upper Oligocene-lower Miocene and Eocene admixture
5-70 cm (core, free-fall)
SS at 53cm. Dark brown to dark grayish brown radiiolarian clay with Fe oxides. Apparent Quat. burrowing into Miocene sediments at top. Lighter halos around peripheries of burrows. Quat.-filled crack between 13 and 55cm may be artifact. Miocene
70-98 cm (core, free-fall)
SS at 91cm. Radiolarian ooze with some Fe oxides. Coarser textured than above owing to more, less fragmented radiolarians (to 50% per weight estimate). Upper contact is gradational. Miocene, and upper Oligocene-lower Miocene at base.
