Abstract : Data and results from Tertiary and Quaternary Sediments of the Ontong Java Plateau Area, an unpublished Ph. D. dissertation, University of Hawaii, November 1972, are presented. Included are an analysis of western equatorial Pacific pre-Quaternary sediment age distribution and properties, and descriptions of the pre-Quaternary and Quaternary cores investigated. Characteristics described for the Quaternary cores are: location, depth, topography of collection site, smear slide description, lithology, C(14) and paleomagnetic chronology, micropaleontology, interpretation of core continuity, statistics of the measured physical, chemical, and faunal properties, and an annotated paleoclimatic chronostratigraphy. Pre-Quaternary core descriptions include location, depth, topography of the collection site, smear slide description, and micropaleontologic interpretations of age and continuity. (Author)
