Abstract : This report organizes a vast amount of the available scientific literature treating the layering structure of marine sediments. The major areas covered are the North Atlantic and North Pacific Oceans. The report contains a user's guide and a useful cross-referenced bibliography. The user's guide organizes the contents of the bibliographic cross-reference system. The bibliographic cross-reference has twelve divisions, with numerous subdivisions. Papers are cross-referenced with respect to study locations, cores, seafloor spreading studies, seismic reflection and refraction, detailed bathymetry, maps, cross sections, geological history, processes of sedimentation and deposition, post-depositional effects, and sediment and rock properties.
