The olive layers are diatom-bearing silty mud with gravel. They represent more of an open marine diatom fauna. This core was collected as a gravity core and the upper 40 cm may represent reworked material from the seafloor. Section 1, 40 cm to Core Catcher: Massive clast-rich diamict, dark greenish gray (5Gy 4/1). The silty mud in the diamict is soft and sticky throughout the core. Large pebbles appear as shown. In Section 2, 0-5 cm, volcaniclastic pebble 5 cm in diameter, Section 3, 60-65 cm, subrounded volcaniclastic pebble 4 cm in diameter, in Core Catcher, volcaniclastic, 3.5 cm in diameter. DESCRIPTION
