(Table 1) Sediment characteristics at DSDP Hole 75-532A


Orientation and geometry of pores as well as sediment compressibility can be approximated by determining the shrinkage behavior of standardized samples. The sections investigated show that these measurements are influenced by changing sediment composition. This is also well documented by the relationship between void ratio and overburden pressure. Median pore-diameter calculations clearly reflect both sediment composition and compaction.
