(Table T1) Iridium concentrations in selected sediment samples of ODP Site 178-1096, supplement to: Kyte, Frank T (2001): Data report: A search for deposits of the late Pliocene impact of the Eltanin asteroid in rise sediments from the Antarctic Peninsula, Site 1096.

Concentrations of Ir have been measured in 87 sediment samples from Ocean Drilling Program Site 1096 in search of evidence of fallout from the impact of the Eltanin asteroid, which occurred at 2.15 Ma, ~1300 km northwest of the site. An additional six samples were measured from a unique sand layer and adjacent sediments that are dated at ~1.6 Ma. These 93 sediment samples are all silts and muds that were deposited on a continental rise drift of the Antarctic Peninsula. No evidence of the Eltanin impact deposit was found in this study.
