Figure F2. The coherence of sediment properties between widely separated drill sites in the equatorial Pacific is very high, allowing correlation of sediment properties over hundreds of kilometers. The example in this figure is from ODP Sites 1218 and 1219 (ODP Leg 199; modified from Shipboard Scientific Party, 2002), two sites that are >740 km apart. VGP = virtual geomagnetic pole. GRA density = density estimated shipboard using gamma ray attenuation, Reflectance L* = lightness value of sediment as defined in the L*a*b* color model. T = top, B = bottom.
