Abstract : Research work during 1995 included completion of Eckernfoerde analyses and collection of data/samples in the Dry Tortugas/Marquesas study area. The results of Eckernfoerde studies were presented at the CBBL workshop during summer 1995 and in two preliminary papers as part of the Marine Letters special volume. Preparations of two final research papers and an integrated summary paper of Eckernfoerde work were started. These include modeling of strata formation, which is highlighted in this annual report. We participated in two research cruises to the Dry Tortugas and Marquesas, and collected over 200 cores in coordination with boundary- layer and acoustic observations. These data will help us to contrast strata formation in a carbonate setting with that observed in siliciclastic settings. Analyses of these new samples started in 1995, as described below.
