Piggot, C. S. and Urry, Wm. D.  
Time Relations in Ocean Sediments
 Picture
Publisher: Geological Society of America, 1942 New York.
Book. Book condition: Very Good. Soft cover 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Bulletin of the Geological Society of America, Vol. 53, pp. 1187-1210. 4 Figs. "Nonequilibium between the radioactive elements in the surface of the ocean bottom provides a method of measuring time in the past 300, 000 years. The principles of this method are not to be confused with those underlying the radioactive methods of determining geologic time measured in millions of years. The well-preserved geological and biological history of the ocean basins has been worked out for many of the cores of ocean sediments procured by Piggot, and the above method of measuring time intervals in years has been applied to these cores. The results indicate: (1) that the effects of glaciation on the continents are contemporaneous with equivalent effects on the type of deposit in the ocean bottom; (2) that the effects of glaciation on the type of ocean sediment are widespread, extending in the northern hemisphere at least to the Caribbean Sea; (3) that within short intervals of time there is, in the ocean bottom, a considerable variation in the type of deposit attributable directly or indirectly to climactic changes which, probably because of the continuous effacement of the evidence on land, has not been reported in studies of continental glaciation. This method cannot compete in accuracy with the use of varved clays, but it possesses the advantages of (1) application to a considerable area of the earth's surface, (2) reference to the present time, and (3) applicability to at least half of the Pleistocene epoch. The rate of deposition of ocean sediments is treated as a subsidiary problem. The obvious sstep from the determination of time intervals in a core to the rate of deposition of the sediment represented by the core is complicated by the present incomplete knowledge of the distortion of the sediment in the process of taking the sample. The results in general agree with previous estimates by other methods, some of which, however, are open to the same criticism. It is possible to discuss within limits the variations of the rate of deposition of ocean sediments in the past." 24 pages. Book is in VERY GOOD condition. Paper wrappers; stapled binding.

Scientific Results of Cruise VII of the Carnegie during 1928-29 under Command of Captain J. P. Ault: Oceanography - II
 Picture
Publisher: Carnegie Instituion of Washington, 1944 Washington, DC.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 4to - over 9 - 12" tall Publication 556. This book includes two titles: I. Marine Bottom Samples Collected in the Pacific Ocean by the Carnegie on Its Seventh Cruise by Roger R. Revelle; and II. Radium Content of Ocean-Bottom Sediments by Charles S. Piggot. "..The present report by Dr. R. R. Revelle, is one which will be recognized as a valuable contribution by all oceanographers. It contains an account of the general character of the deep-sea samples collected in the Pacific by the Carnegie, and of the distribution of the various deposit-types, together with the results of chemical, mechanical, X-ray, and other types of analyses. As indicated in the text, many of the analyses were carried out in whole or in part by other investigators..Few determinations have been made on the radium content of materials comprising ocean-bottom sediments. Dr. C. S. Piggot made twenty-eight determinations on samples secured by the Carnegie on her last cruise. The results of his investigations are presented in the second report of the present volume. When the vast areas covered by ocean-bottom sediments, and the high radium content of these sediments is considered, it is evident that additional measurements of this kind should be made.." Illustrated with appropriate charts, graphs and maps. 196 pages with index. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.
