Physical properties

The only measured physical properties of cores recovered in Hole U1415H are magnetic susceptibility and color reflectance. These data were acquired using the Section Half Multisensor Logger with a measurement interval of 2 cm. Raw data were uploaded to the LIMS database and subsequently filtered to remove spurious points that correspond to empty intervals in the liner, broken pieces, and pieces that were too small. Filtered data are available in PHYSPROP in “Supplementary material.” Magnetic susceptibility ranges from ~100 × 10–5 to 1660 × 10–5 SI. Color reflectance parameters L*, a*, and b* mean values are 34.3 ± 2.15, –0.69 ± 0.49, and 1.20 ± 1.37, respectively.
