The reversibility of the temperature effect on the chemical composition of interstitial waters of three deep-sea sediment samples was examined between 2 and 25°C for Cl, Na, K, Mg, Ca, Si, B, Mn and alkalinity. When the temperature of sediment samples was returned from 25°C to the initial value of 2°C, most chemical species gave nearly their initial concentrations. However, for alkalinity and in one case for magnesium, it took another three to four hours to reach their initial concentrations.
