Preliminary investigation in Holocene to mid-Miocene turbidites and pelagic sediment revealed as many as 37 discrete ash layers. Location coordinates provided in the Deep Sea Drilling Project Reports and Publications (http://www.deepseadrilling.org/i_reports.htm) as degrees/minutes/seconds and converted to decimal degrees; datum not specified, assumed to be NAD27.No sample description provided.
