Sites 812 through 814 and 824 reflect a zoned system with 87Sr/86Sr ratios close to modern seawater values despite the Miocene age of the host sediment. It is possible that the fluid flow at depth is associated with a hardground between Pliocene/Pleistocene and Miocene/Pliocene sediments. Pore waters from Sites 815, 817, 818 and 823 show increasing salinites/chloride with depth which may reflect the presence of evaporites beneath the drilled sections. -from Authors
