Abstract:

Detailed measurements of bulk density and vane shear strength were made in situ and on gravity cores in the San Diego Trough, Wilkinson Basin, and Abyssal Plain and Mississippi Delta areas of the Gulf of Mexico. Comparisons of in situ and laboratory measurements are made to evaluate the influence of sample disturbances and test method on bulk density and vane shear strength. Location differences between in situ and gravity core locations and the associated areal variation of bulk density and vane shear strength are described in detail for all comparisons.
