MetadataShow full item record
This report supplements Volumes 1 - 7 of the core descriptions published previously in this sequence (Johnson and Driscoll, 1975; 1977; Broda, Franks, and Keith, 1981; Broda and Andrew, 1985). It contains visual descriptions and smear slide analyses for several suites of cores received in the geological samples collection of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution between mid-1984 and late 1989. Approximately 220 sample localities from the North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Mediterranean and Pacific Oceans are represented. Charts of ships tracks for cruises included in this report and updated computer listings of all cores in the W.H.O.I. col1ection are also presented.
