Figure F31. Lithostratigraphic, LWD resistivity, and seismic reflector correlation between Sites U1322, U1323, and U1324. Seismic Reflectors S10S30 can be traced through all sites and encompass a consistent sedimentary environment of mud and clay deposition interspersed with two mass transport events. Below S30, sediments at Site U1324 are characterized by the onset of conspicuous turbidite deposition in lithostratigraphic Unit II, whereas Site U1322 shows a concentration of mass transport deposits in lithostratigraphic Unit II. Because the bases of Sites U1322 and U1324 (see Fig. F32) are approximately the same age, the contrasting deposits represent approximate time-equivalent facies.
