Dredge statistics for the Southwest Indian Ridge, and the Atlantis II Transform walls. Percentages are calculated by the weight of material recovered. Modified from Zhou and Dick (2013). The average weight of the 868 rocks weighed and described from Atlantis Bank was 3.7 ± 5.81 kg, with a mean weight of 1.5 kg and a range from 0.01 to 48 kg. In all, some 1123 different samples by lithology were found in the 3243 kg of rock described, with numerous samples containing more than one lithology. For samples < 0.1 kg, the weight given is nominal depending on the size of the pebble. Similarly, with many of the larger samples, the weight was estimated as well. Table 2 percentages normalized to 100%
