The striking difference between the basalts of Hole 417A (strongly altered) and those of Hole 417D (slightly altered) is one of the main discoveries of Legs 51-52. After a macroscopic description of the two basaltic sections, the authors describe the mineralogy of alteration in the two holes. In Hole 417D, the pillow margins exhibit a nice concentric zoning… CONTINUE READING
