Abstract : Sediment cores were collected in the Greenland/Norwegian Sea for the purpose of ground-truthing previously collected sidescan imagery. This report presents the results of shore-based analyses performed on the cores. Interpretive results are not included. The unopened cores were continuously logged at 2-cm intervals for compressional-wave velocity and gamma-ray attenuation. Wet bulk density, porosity, water content, and void ratio were calculated from the attenuation measurements. Analytical results are presented in the form of spreadsheets and graphs.
