Distribution of coarse and fine sediment fractions at Site 178-1095, supplement to: Moerz, Tobias; Wolf-Welling, Thomas C W (2001): Data report: Fine-fraction grain-size distribution data and their statistical treatment and relation to processes, Site 1095 (ODP Leg 178, western Antarctic Peninsula).

Fine-fraction (<63 µm) grain-size analyses of 530 samples from Holes 1095A, 1095B, and 1095D allow assessment of the downhole grain-size distribution at Drift 7. A variety of data processing methods, statistical treatment, and display techniques were used to describe this data set. The downhole fine-fraction grain-size distribution documents significant variations in the average grain-size composition and its cyclic pattern, revealed in five prominent intervals: (1) between 0 and 40 meters composite depth (mcd) (0 and 1.3 Ma), (2) between 40 and 80 mcd (1.3 and 2.4 Ma), (3) between 80 and 220 mcd (2.4 and 6 Ma), (4) between 220 and 360 mcd, and (5) below 360 mcd (prior to 8.1 Ma).
