Drilling at Bougainville Guyot (Ocean Drilling Program Site 831), New Hebrides Island Arc during Leg 134 revealed that 727.5 m of carbonate overlies an andesite basement. The carbonate cap at Site 831 consists of 20 m of pelagic carbonate overlying 707.5 m of neritic carbonates. The neritic section consists of -230 m of largely unaltered aragonite sediment that overlies -497 m of totally calcitized limestone. The deeper portion of the calcitized interval has been pervasively altered by… CONTINUE READING
