Abstract:
Light greenish gray and pale purple color bands are common in the ooze and chalk of the Ontong Java Plateau. Analyses of Pleistocene and Pliocene ooze samples that contain abundant bands indicate that the purple bands are colored by finely disseminated iron sulfide, whereas the green bands are colored by finely disseminated Fe- and Al-bearing silicates (probably clays). No local contrasts in the total organic carbon contents, carbon and oxygen isotopic compositions, and grain sizes were found.
Band abundances, counted from core photographs of all Leg 130 holes, can be correlated from hole to hole on the basis of age rather than depth. The temporal distribution of these color bands is also comparable with that of the green bands described from the Lord Howe Rise, which were previously interpreted as products of altered volcanic glass. This may indicate that the green and purple bands on the Ontong Java Plateau originate from the early alteration of volcanic ash.
The crosscutting relationships between the green and purple bands and original structures in the host sediment indicate that the bands have been locally altered by redox conditions in the sediments after the bands were formed.
