Ship: Healy
Cruise: HLY1002 (H-3-10-AR)
Sample: HLY1002-2P-1
Device: core, piston
Latitude: 70.9591
Longitude: -144.05238
Water Depth(m): 1157
Date: 20100812
PI: Brian Edwards
IGSN: ECS003003
Core length (cm): 302
Diameter (cm): 8.65
Storage: refrigerated
Province: slope, continental

Piston core (2400 lb weightstand), 3 sections. Subsamples: core cutter, core catcher, scrape of external pipe for microfauna. Site Info: L977AR Ln720. Pull out: 4900. Time: 11:19 Outcrop exposure near edge of Beaufort shelf. Poorly sorted, subangular to subrounded clastic silt fragments in a clay matrix. Moderately common diatoms, moderate preservation (some fragmentation). Age likely late Pliocene ca. 2.3 to 1.7Ma. Lack of common sea ice taxa indicative of relatively ice-free conditions.
