U.S. Geological Survey Data Series 542
Each of the 07SCC04 and 07SCC05 vibracores was cut into 40-cm sections, split lengthwise, and photographed. Detail about sediment texture, color, composition, bedding, and other physical characteristics recorded on the Core Description Sheets can also be observed on the core photographs. The photographs for each 40-cm interval were merged into a single PDF file for each core.
