Figure 10. Relationship between position of phase boundary and position of BSR. Depths to phase boundaries based on Claypool and Kaplan (Claypool and Kaplan, 1974); depths to BSR's based on assumed velocities of sound in sediment at each site by authors (see Appendix). The term "ideal fit" represents the concept that the BSR originates at the phase boundary.
