Data report: long-term storage of cuttings for geochemical research1

Takuroh Noguchi2,3 and Kei Okamura2


In this paper, we present the chemical compositions of cuttings samples from Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Expedition 319 Site C0009 to assess the influence of long-term storage of cuttings. The cuttings were washed and analyzed just after their recovery, 6 months later, and 33 months later. The analytical elements are Al, Ca, Fe, K, Mg, Na, Ba, Mn, Sr, Zn, Li, and Cr. This report presents the analytical results.
