In-situ proton-microprobe analyses are presented for glasses, plagioclases, pyroxenes, olivines, and spinels in eleven samples from Sites 834-836, 839, and 841 (vitrophyric rhyolite), plus a Tongan dacite. Elements analyzed are Mn, Ni, Cu, Zn, Ga, Rb, Sr, Y, Zr, Pb, and Sn (in spinels only). The data are used to calculate two sets of partition coefficients, one set based on the ratio of element in mineral/element in coexisting glass. The second set of coefficients, thought...
Corg, CaCO3, bulk densities, accumulation rates and ages of ODP Leg 167 sites and three piston cores, California margin, supplement to: Lyle, Mitchell W; Mix, Alan C; Ravelo, Ana Christina; Andreasen, Dyke; Heusser, Linda E; Olivarez, Annette (2000): Millennial-scale CaCO3 and Corg events along the northern and central California margins: stratigraphy and origins. In: Lyle, M; Koizumi, I; Richter, C; Moore, TC Jr (eds.) Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program, Scientific Results, College Station, TX (Ocean Drilling Program), 167, 1-20Mitchell W Lyle, Alan C Mix, Ana Christina Ravelo, Dyke Andreasen, Linda E Heusser & Annette Olivarez
Sediments from five Leg 167 drill sites and three piston cores were analyzed for Corg and CaCO3. Oxygen isotope stratigraphy on benthic foraminifers was used to assign age models to these sedimentary records. We find that the northern and central California margin is characterized by k.y.-scale events that can be found in both the CaCO3 and Corg time series. We show that the CaCO3 events are caused by changes in CaCO3 production by plankton, not...

Geochemical composition of sediment samples from Krasnov field in the Mid Atlantic Ridge, supplement to: Rusakov, Valery Yu; Kuzmina, Tatyana G; Roshchina, I A; Shilov, V V (2012): Accumulation history of the metalliferous and ore-bearing sediments of the Krasnov Hydrothermal Field (MAR 16°38N) for last 80 ka: Part II. Geochemistry International, 50(3), 246-271Valery Yu Rusakov, Tatyana G Kuzmina, I A Roshchina & V V Shilov
This paper is dedicated to the geochemical studies of two bottom sediment cores that were taken during cruise 28 of the R/V Professor Logachev in the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (MAR) 16°38'N area in 2006. The chemical compositions of background metalliferous and ore (ore-bearing) carbonate sediments are presented and inter-element correlations are examined. Individual episodes are distinguished in the accumulation history of the ore-bearing and metalliferous sediments on the basis of element factor analysis.
Geochemistry and petrogenesis of basalts from DSDP Leg 92 holes, supplement to: Pearce, Julian A; Rogers, Nick; Tindle, A J; Watson, J S (1986): Geochemistry and petrogenesis of basalts from Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 92, eastern Pacific. In: Leinen, M; Rea DK; et al. (eds.), Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project, Washington (U.S. Govt. Printing Office), 92, 435-457Julian A Pearce, Nick Rogers, A J Tindle & J S Watson
Basalts recovered on DSDP Leg 92 include all the major basalt types so far recovered from the ocean crust of the eastern Pacific. Basalts from Holes 597, 597A, 597B, 597C, and 599B are tholeiites exhibiting all the mineralogical and geochemical characteristics of N-type mid-ocean ridge basalts (MORB). Fragments of ferrobasalts and alkali basalts were also obtained, however, from Holes 60IB and 602B, respectively. Hole 597C, which penetrated 91 m into basement and is the deepest...
Geochemistry of ODP Site 135-834 basalts, supplement to: Hergt, Janet M; Nilsson Farley, Kristen (1994): Major element, trace element, and isotope (Pb, Sr, and Nd) variations in Site 834 basalts: Implications for the initiation of backarc opening. In: Hawkins, J; Parson, L; Allan, J; et al. (eds.), Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program, Scientific Results, College Station, TX (Ocean Drilling Program), 135, 471-485Janet M Hergt & Kristen Nilsson Farley
New major, trace element, and isotope data (Pb, Sr, and Nd) reveal an impressive compositional variation in the basalts recovered from Site 834. Major element compositions span almost the entire range observed in basalts from the modern axial systems of the Lau Basin, and variations are consistent with low-pressure fractionation of a mid-ocean-ridge-basalt (MORB)-like parent, in which plagioclase crystallization has been somewhat suppressed. Trace element compositions deviate from MORB in all but one unit (Unit...
Geochemistry of ODP Leg 135 igneous rock samples, supplement to: Hawkins, James W; Allan, James F (1994): Petrologic evolution of Lau Basin Sites 834 through 839. In: Hawkins, J; Parson, L; Allan, J; et al. (eds.), Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program, Scientific Results, College Station, TX (Ocean Drilling Program), 135, 427-470James W Hawkins & James F Allan
Ocean Drilling Program Leg 135 provided igneous rock cores from six sites drilled on a transect across the Lau Basin between the Lau Ridge remnant arc and the modem spreading ridges of the Central and Eastern Lau Spreading Centers. The drill cores sampled crust from the earliest stage of backarc extension (latest Miocene time, about 6 Ma), and younger crust (late Pliocene, about 3.8-2 Ma, and middle Pleistocene, about 0.64-0.8 Ma). Nearly all of the...

Three lower Barremian to middle/upper Cenomanian samples from DSDP Hole 549 and three lower Cenomanian to lower Maestrichtian samples from DSDP Hole 550B were investigated by organic geochemical and organic petrographic methods. The samples came from wells drilled in the area of the Goban Spur in the northeastern Atlantic; they represent gray to greenish gray carbonaceous mud or siltstones from the deeper parts of the Cretaceous sequences penetrated and light-colored chalks from the shallower ones.The...
Monthly air temperatures, snow density and snow and ice thickness at Malcolm Ramsay Lake, North America, supplement to: Brown, Laura C; Duguay, Claude R (2011): A comparison of simulated and measured lake ice thickness using a Shallow Water Ice Profiler. Hydrological Processes, 25(19), 1932-1941Laura C Brown & Claude R Duguay
In northern regions where observational data is sparse, lake ice models are ideal tools as they can provide valuable information on ice cover regimes. The Canadian Lake Ice Model was used to simulate ice cover for a lake near Churchill, Manitoba, Canada throughout the 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 ice covered seasons. To validate and improve the model results, in situ measurements of the ice cover through both seasons were obtained using an upward-looking sonar device Shallow...
Short-term variations in radiolarian faunal dsitribution in the eastern equatorial Pacific, supplement to: Pisias, Nicklas G; Moore, Theodore C (1995): Radiolarian response to oceanographic changes in the eastern Equatorial Pacific at 2.3 and 4.8 Ma: Relationship between changing carbonate deposition and surface oceanography. In: Pisias, NG; Mayer, LA; Janecek, TR; Palmer-Julson, A; van Andel, TH (eds.), Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling Program, Scientific Results, College Station, TX (Ocean Drilling Program), 138, 461-478Nicklas G Pisias & Theodore C Moore
Two short time intervals centered at 2.3 and 4.7 Ma were studied to investigate short-term variations in surface-ocean processes as indicated by changes in the radiolarian microfossil population. These time intervals represent two different settings of late Neogene climate. The older interval represents a time when tropical circulation between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans was not blocked by the Isthmus of Panama, whereas the younger interval represents a time when Northern Hemisphere glaciation was present...

A group of 46 radiolarian species was used in this study of Leg 138 sites. The recovery of the sections was complete in the intervals that were cored using the APC system and nearly complete in the deeper sections. The northeastern sites (844 and 845) were sampled down through the middle Miocene into the uppermost part of the lower Miocene (middle part of the Calocycletta costata Zone). In the southeastern sites and those of the...
Setup can be found below. Based on the results in the *.png file, I would consider this experiment inconclusive and possibly a failed experiment. It's kinda relieving and fun to post negative/failed data!
This is the second trial in the Repeating Crumley Experiment with tobacco seeds grown in 33% D2O mixed with DI Water. This experiment was a failed experiment due to an issue with the building heating and cooling system. Plant seeds grew in inconsistent manners and stopped growing after a couple days. Links to relevant information is shown below including, experimental background, products, and daily notes.
