Abstract

Compressional and shear velocities, density, and porosity were measured for 22 serpentinized peridotites recovered during ODP Leg 125., The densites of the samples vary from 2.40 to 2.86 g/cm3, whereas the compressional velocities at 200 MPa are between 4.60 and 6.47 km/s. A positive linear trend exists between both compressional and shear velocities and density. The high porosity in serpentinized peridotites decreases the density and seismic velocity. -Authors
