Microbiological examination of sediment cores from the Peru margin (Leg 112) has produced highly significant results: (1) bacteria were present at all sediment depths sampled to 80 meters below seafloor (mbsf); (2) Bacteria were observed in the process of cell division at all but one depth to 80 mbsf; (3) Viable bacteria of different types (heterotrophs, sulfate-reducing, nitrate-reducing, methanogenic, and hydrocarbon oxidizing) have been isolated from many of the sediment samples, including those at 80...
