(Table 1) Summary of low-molecular-weight hydrocarbon concentrations, organic carbon contents, Rock-Eval pyrolysis and lithology at DSDP Leg 79 Holes, supplement to: Schaefer, Rainer G; Leythaeuser, Detlev; Gormly, James (1984): Generation and migration of low-molecular-weight hydrocarbons in sediments of Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 79, Sites 544, 545, and 547, offshore Morocco.

A series of core samples taken during Cruise 79 of Glomar Challenger, drilling offshore Morocco (Mazagan Plateau), is analyzed for their low-molecular-weight hydrocarbon contents. Fifty-four samples from DSDP Holes 544A, 545, 547A, and 547B, deep frozen on board immediately after recovery, are studied by a hydrogen-stripping/thermovaporization technique combined with capillary gas chromatography. Thirty-eight compounds in the C2-C8 molecular range, including saturated, olefinic, and aromatic hydrocarbons, are identified.
