Summary: From studies of these sediments it was concluded that the profile to the explored depth of 200 m consists of ∼ 50 m of foram-nanofossil marl, over 64 m of diatom-nanofossil marl, over nanofossil marl to the depth explored. All three sediment units appear to be normally consolidated, although some anomalies seem to exist to a depth of 120 m. No distinct differences were found in the sediment properties of the three subunits identified.
