A series, of 11 cores from the North Atlantic sea‐bottom between the Newfoundland Banks and the banks off the Irish Coast have been studied by a group of geologists of the United States Geological Survey. These cores were taken by Dr. C. S. Piggot of the Carnegie Institution's Geophysical Laboratory from the cable ship Lord Kelvin with the explosive type of sounding‐apparatus, which he designed (C. S. Piggot, Apparatus to secure core‐samples from the oceanbottom, Bull. Geol. Soc. Amer., v. 47, pp. 675–684, 1936). This preliminary report is based largely on the results obtained by M. N. Bramlette, who studied the lithology, and Jos. A. Cushman, who studied the forarainifera. The geographic position, the depth of water at each station, and the length of core obtained are given in Table 1. ©1937. American Geophysical Union. All Rights Reserved.
