Site 765: Sediment Lithostratigraphy

January 1, 1990

A 935-m-thick succession of Quaternary through Lower Cretaceous sediments was recovered at Site 765 (Fig. 10). A single core of Quaternary sediment was obtained from Hole 765A; drilling terminated and a new hole was drilled in an attempt to establish the mud line. Quaternary through middle Miocene sediments were cored in Hole 765B down to a depth of 395.6 mbsf. Middle Miocene through Lower Cretaceous sediments were cored in Hole 765C, after washing the interval between 0 and 350.2 mbsf. Exact lithologic correlation of the basal cores from Hole 765B with the upper cores from Hole 765C is not possible because of poor recovery; hence, correlation is based solely on matching sub-bottom depths.
