The sulfur contents of 21 basalt samples from four DSDP Leg 82 holes were determined and the isotopic compositions of sulfur were measured on 15 of them. Most of the basalts are altered and have sulfur contents of about 100 ppm. Isotopic ratios for sulfate and total sulfur range from +0.7 to +10.5 per mil, indicating almost complete leaching of the igneous sulfide in low-sulfur samples by alteration.
Total sulfur content of some samples ranges between 960 and 1170 ppm, somewhat higher than expected for tholeiitic basalts. The isotope ratios of total sulfur in these samples are slightly shifted to values heavier than the generally assumed mantle ratio of zero, and this shift is thought to result from a secondary source of sulfur.

Blanks indicate that samples were too altered for determination of d34S and/or that the samples were too small for determining the three sulfur phases.
