Abstract

We conducted particle size analyses on 208 samples from Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 329 in the South Pacific Gyre. Expedition 329 cored deep-sea sediment at seven sites along two transects in the center of the gyre. We analyzed the particle size distribution of sediment in the clay to silt size range (1.5–63 µm) at the seven drill sites using a Sedigraph particle size analyzer. Here we describe our laboratory procedure and present the overall results. The majority of samples are composed of clay-sized material, with some samples having >95 wt% of particles finer than 1.5 µm. However, a number of samples, in particular from sites located further offshore, show an extraordinarily well sorted particle size distribution.
