A study of the mass physical properties of a sediment core from the anaerobic Cariaco Trench shows there to be a noticeable difference in these properties relative to those of the eastern Caribbean and Atlantic basins, and an even greater difference from those of the anoxic Black Sea. The variations in physical properties appear to reflect the respective concentrations of organic carbon in the four areas compared.
