Hole 735B lithostratigraphic variations: a Relative abundances of igneous rocks averaged over a moving downhole running average of 20 igneous intervals. A total of 952 discrete igneous intervals were described and are included in the running average. Rock names follow the standard IUGS classification with modifiers to indicate oxide abundance. b Crystal-plastic deformation intensity from zero (undeformed) to five (ultramylonite). c Amphibole veins by core percentage averaged over a 2 m window. Modified from Dick et al. (2000)
