Figure F49. Cross-plot of wet bulk density and porosity from section samples, Hole M0027A. Diagonal line = mixing line between rock (zero porosity and density of 2.7 g/cm3) and saltwater (100% porosity and density of 1.024 g/cm3). Clays and silts that plot below the mixing line have lower densities, possibly because of high organic matter content.
