Grain size analysis of sediment core CRP-3 from the Ross Sea, Antarctica, supplement to: Barrett, Peter J (2001): Grain-size analysis of samples from Cape Roberts core CRP-3, Victoria Land Basin, Antarctica. Terra Antartica, 8(3), 245-254

Peter J Barrett
Grain-size analyses by sieve and Sedigraph are presented for 115 samples of core from CRP-3, 12 km off the coast of south Victoria Land. The data provide a useful check on visual core descriptions. The geographic setting for the strata sampled, some 790 m of early Oligocene nearshore marine sediments with a persistent glacial influence, is reviewed, and sediment textures interpreted in that context. Sand textures from the CRP-3 samples in the lower part of...
