Geochemical analyses have been performed on sediment samples collected during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 178 from the continental rise and outer continental shelf of the Antarctic Peninsula. A suite of 21 trace elements was measured by neutron activation analysis in 39 sediment samples, and major element oxides were determined in 67 samples by electron microprobe analyses of fused glass beads. These geochemical data, combined with the X-ray diffraction and X-ray fluorescence data from shipboard analyses, provide a reasonable estimate of the mineral and chemical composition of sediments deposited along the western margin of the Antarctic Peninsula.
