At Sites 1130 and 1132 of Ocean Drilling Program Leg 182 in the Great Australian Bight, we recovered an expanded Pleistocene section dominated by packstone and wackestone, deposited at unusually high rates of >20 cm/k.y. Shipboard observations detected an intermittent meter-scale alternation of light gray intervals with olive-gray intervals. Meter-scale samples were collected from the upper 250 m at both sites and decimeter-scale samples from four selected 2.5- to 4.0-m intervals in order to determine the texture and composition of sediments deposited along the upper slope throughout the Quaternary. Detailed textural and compositional data are presented from a total of 540 samples collected from both sites. Results indicate a general coarsening upward at both sites, with an accompanying upcore increase in high-Mg calcite (HMC) and aragonite and a decrease in low-Mg calcite (LMC). Samples collected at decimeter-scale intervals substantiate that the alternating light gray and olive-gray units detected on board ship are lithologically distinct. Light gray units consist of an LMC-rich silt, whereas olive-gray units consist of an aragonite and HMC-rich sand and silt. Sediment sources as well as timing and controls of this cyclic depositional pattern will be the subject of further investigations.
