NONVOLATILE ORGANIC-MATTER AT SITES-565-570, DEEP-SEA DRILLING PROJECT LEG-84 | Chapter individual record
abstract

Organic-carbon content and carbon isotopic compositions within the Pleistocene and Pliocene-Oligocene sections at Sites 565-570 in the Middle American Trench area were internally consistent. For the Pleistocene section, a decrease in organic-carbon content toward present-day land and a relatively constant carbon isotopic composition was observed. For the Pliocene-Oligocene section, there is a general increase in organic-carbon content in the direction of present-day land.-from Authors
