Textural parameters, granulometric statistical parameters (mean, standard deviation,. skewness, and kurtosis), cumulative curve shape of grain-size distribution, sand fraction composition, carbonate content, and bulk mineralogy were determined for Cenozoic sediments of lithostratigraphic Units I and II recovered at Sites 897, 898, 899, and 900 on Ocean Drilling Program Leg 149. These data allow us to discriminate among and characterize the three main sedimentary facies (pelagic/hemipelagic, turbidite, and contourite) recognized in the Cenozoic (Pleistocene to Eocene) deposits of the Iberia Abyssal Plain. This report describes the textural analysis and mineral composition for these three sedimentary facies
