Sedimentary core CAS16-07PC dataset from CASEIS Cruise

This dataset contains the data acquired on the 19 m-long core CAS16-07PC (17°18.481’N, 60°59.840’W, 5425 mbsl) sampled with the Calypso piston coring system in the Méduse Basin offshore the Antigua island (Lesser Antilles) during the research cruise CASEIS (DOI 10.17600/16001800) on board of the R/V Pourquoi Pas?, between May 28th to July 05th 2016. The core was divided in 12 sections of about 150 cm and 1 section of about 100 cm. This dataset consists of the raw data measured: 1) on board with the GEOTECK Multi Sensor Core Logger of the Quebec University at Rimouski (on the whole core: P-wave velocity, gamma density, and volumetric magnetic susceptibility; and on the split core:  high resolution photographs, surface magnetic susceptibility and spectrophotocolorimetry); and 2) the X-ray images with the GEOTEK X-ray CT and the semi-quantitative chemical elementary profiles with an AVAATECH XRF core scanner at IFREMER. 81 turbidites has been identified intercalated with hemipelagic sediment layers.
