Abstract

The purpose of this report is to present in one place the data sets gained from (1) an investigation into the geochemistry of distal Bengal Fan sediments from Leg 116, and (2) two
separate studies of the clay mineralogy at these same sites. The data are referred to in papers by Bouquillon et al, and Stow et al. (both, this volume). For completeness, the table of clay mineral results from Brass and Raman (this volume) is reproduced here by permission of the authors. We also briefly outline the relationship between geochemistry and facics within these mud-dominated fan sediments.
