Figure F21. Scanned core photographs showing evidence of magma-sediment (peperitic) interaction observed in Hole U1374A. A. Basalt clasts mingled with bioclast-bearing micrite (Unit V; interval 330-U1374A-5R-4A, 100–120 cm). B. Basaltic breccia with a basaltic sand matrix. The large clast in the center resembles a small pillow (Unit X; interval 330-U1374A-17R-3A, 20–40 cm). C. Peperitic breccia composed of basalt mingled with sandy sediment (Unit XII; interval 330-U1374A-23R-2A, 107–127 cm).
