Figure F7. Detail of Site U1338 X-ray fluorescence (XRF) CaCO3 profile in the section where CaCO3 was measured at 10 cm intervals. The gamma ray attenuation (GRA) bulk density profile over the same interval is also shown, as bulk density in equatorial Pacific sediment is strongly correlated to carbonate content. All three data sets exhibit the same high-frequency variation, suggesting that the noise in the XRF estimate is small. Calibration data are the discrete CaCO3 calibration data set, and check data are the discrete CaCO3 check data set.
