Abstract:

Deep ocean sediment cores recovered by the drill ship DV GLOMAR CHALLENGER have provided invaluable boundary conditions for the interpretation of marine seismic reflection and refraction data. In combination, these data provide much of the basis for constructing geoacoustic models in support of low-frequency acoustic propagation in the deep ocean. This report provides a concise, graphic correlation between vertical reflection seismic records across the drill holes, and lithologic-physical property data measured from the drilled cores. This correlation and condensation in a standardized format is the first step in producing a synthesis of the data, which will provide insight into the correlation between lithographic and acoustic properties of marine sediments. As stated, this data presentation is only the first step of a synthesis, and interpretation has been minimized. The material is being published at this time in the belief that the condensed data presentation is of immediate value to many people independent of the authors ultimate objective. A detailed discussion of terminology and measurement technique is provided for users from outside the geoscience discipline. Author
