Summary: Organic carbon and gas analyses of samples from Ross Sea cores indicate that the cores are among the richest yet analyzed for hydrocarbon gases. They also contain small but significant amounts of ethane and heavier gaseous hydrocarbons. Overall, muds from Holes 272 and 273A have more gas than any other samples run to date. The samples have only moderate amounts of organic matter.
