Sedimentiological Analysis of Cores Recovered from the RV Marion Dufrresne Cruise in the Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico is a small ocean basin surrounded by land masses. It is connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Florida Strait to the east and to the Caribbean Sea through the Yucatan channel. Numerous topics have been studied in the Gulf of Mexico including: sediment transport, mineralogy, grain size and more recently sea floor sediment distribution. These studies confirm the major influence of sediment supplied by the Mississippi River on the composition of the Gulf of Mexico sediments.
