Leg 27 sediments were analyzed for total carbon and acid-insoluble (organic) carbon using a LECO acid-base Analyzer. The 3-cc sediment samples were first dried at 105°-110°C and then ground to a homogeneous powder. The ground sediment was redried and two samples, a 0.1-g and a 0.5-g sample, were then weighed into LECO clay crucibles. The 0.5-g sample was acidified with diluted hydrochloric acid and washed with distilled water. The sample was then dried and analyzed for acid-insoluble carbon, listed in the table as "organic" carbon. The 0.1-g sample was analyzed for total carbon without further treatment. If the result showed less than 10% CaCO3, an additional 0.5-g sample was analyzed for greater accuracy. The calcium carbon percentages were calculated as follows: (% total C-% organic C) * 8.33 = % CaCO3. Although other carbonates may be present, all acid-soluble carbon was calculated as calcium carbonate. All results are given in weight percent.
