The cores discussed in this report present a wide variety of types, ranging from coarse-grained to fine-grained and from predominantly organogene carbonate composition to predominantly mineral composition, while two cores contain a relatively large amount of amorphous (organogene) silica. Also, the composition of the clay fraction varies widely, resulting in a broad range of values for base exchange capacity.
