Summary: Main types of sediment are considered under: organogenic pelagic sediments, turbidites, pebbly muds, paraglacial terrigenous muds, brown and red deep-sea clay, and others, mainly volcanogenic. Radiographs of 20 cores, and 25 smear slides are included. Textural and mineral composition are described and shown in graphs, table, ternary plots, and 36 microphotos. Sedimentary structures discussed include turbidites, pebbly mudstones, pelagic and hemi-pelagic sediments, and laminites, illustrated by core photos. Physical properties selected for discussion are: bulk density and natural gamma-ray emission measurements, results of penetrometer tests on fine-grained portions, and down-hole measurements. Chemical diagenesis of carbonates, chert, and iron minerals are dealt with, and 18 thin sections conclude the paper.
