Abstract

In situ electrical resistivity was measured in DSDP Hole 504B to a depth of 1,013 m into oceanic basement. Apparent resistivities are about 10 Ω m in about 600 m of pillow lavas, sharply increasing to nearly 1,000 Ω m in the underlying dykes. Bulk porosities calculated from resistivities show a distinct layering, apparently corresponding to geophysical layers 2A, 2B and 2C.
