Short Course on Shipboard Sedimentology:
Data Collection, Interpretation, and Integration
November 14-17, 2016 – College Station, Texas, USA
Comprehensive shipboard core description and data integration of sedimentary units in the core description lab during IODP expeditions provide a fundamental framework for the science party as they work toward the expedition objectives. It is primarily during this shipboard time that the cores are systematically described and sampled, and the characteristics of the stratigraphy resolved and integrated with paleontological, paleomagnetic, physical property, geochemical, and seismic reflection data sets. This shipboard work provides the science team with a record of what the cores contain, where there are interesting occurrences and transitions in primary composition, depositional style as evidenced by sedimentary structures and bedding, and diagenetic mineralization.
This short course on shipboard sedimentology will emphasize marine sediment description, both macroscopically and microscopically, through determination of lithologic attributes during core description (e.g., color, texture, sedimentary structures, trace and other fossil content), as well as sediment composition through smear slide and coarse fraction petrography. We will also cover lithostratigraphic unit definition, preliminary interpretation, and, to some extent, integration of sedimentology data with other shipboard data sets.
