ABSTRACT
Multiple holes were cored at Ocean Drilling Program Leg 178 Sites
1098 and 1099 in two subbasins of the Palmer Deep in order to recover
complete and continuous records of sedimentation. By correlating mea-
sured properties of cores from different holes at a site, we have estab-
lished a common depth scale, referred to as the meters composite depth
scale (mcd), for all cores from Site 1098. For Site 1098, distinct similari-
ties in the magnetic susceptibility records obtained from three holes
provide tight constraints on between-hole correlation. Additional con-
straints come from lithologic features. Specific intervals from other data
sets, particularly gamma-ray attenuation bulk density, magnetic inten-
sity, and color reflectance, contain distinctive anomalies that correlate
well when placed into the preferred composite depth scale, confirming
