GCR Display Cores
Hawaiian Arch, approximately 225-km south-southwest of the island of Oahu.
To install a reentry cone on the seafloor and the casing of a hole to basement for use as a test site for the Ocean Seismic Network.
Dark reddish brown clay and zeolitic clay. In general, the clay is homogeneous, structureless, and highly disturbed by drilling. Faint, wavy, subparallel, laminations are present at 86-95 cm.
Upper EoceneMiddle Miocene
The limited depth of sampling precludes an in-depth interpretation of the diagenetic processes taking place in the red clay sediments of site 842. Nonetheless, there is evidence of a limited extent of bacterially mediated oxidation of organic matter in the SO4, NH4, and PO4 pore-water profiles. Silica diagenesis, on the other hand, is well documented by the dissolved silica profile.
