Site 765: Sedimentology

Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program: Initial Reports



Various techniques were used to decipher the sedimentation history of Site 765, including Markov chain analysis of facies transitions, XRD analysis of clay and other minerals, and multivariate analysis of smear-slide data, in addition to the standard descriptive procedures employed by the shipboard sedimentologist. This chapter presents brief summaries of methodology and major findings of these three techniques, a summary of the sedimentation history, and a discussion of trends in sedimentation through time.
