INTRODUCTION
More than four years have passed since the completion of Ocean
Drilling Program (ODP) Leg 172. Since then, the shipboard and other
scientists have begun to complete their studies of cores recovered and
data resulting from the cruise. The purpose of this paper is to give a
brief overview of the main postcruise findings from papers published,
in press, and submitted since the end of the cruise. Most of these are
contained within this volume or are in a special issue of Marine Geology,
edited by Leg 172 Co-Chief Scientist Dr. Domenico Rio. A smaller num-
ber of papers have been submitted to other journals. In addition, many
of the research projects are still in their infancy and so a number of Leg
172 publications can be expected over the next few years.
Not surprisingly, the major themes of postcruise research are similar
to the major themes identified by shipboard investigations. For conve-
nience, the postcruise contributions to journal literature are grouped
below according to the following disciplines: sedimentology and sedi-
