INDEX TO VOLUME 157
| This index covers both the Initial
Reports and Scientific Results portions of
Volume 157 of the Proceedings of the Ocean Drilling
Program. References to page numbers in the Initial
Reports are preceded by "A" with a colon
(A:) and to those in the Scientific Results
(this book) by "B" with a colon (B:).
The index was prepared by Earth Systems, under subcontract to the Ocean Drilling Program. The index contains two hierarchies of entries: (1) a main entry, defined as a keyword or concept followed by a reference to the page on which that word or concept appears, and (2) a subentry, defined as an elaboration on the main entry followed by a page reference.
The index follows a standard format. Geographic, geologic, and other terms are referenced only if they are subjects of discussion. The index covers volume text, figures, and tables but not core-description forms ("barrel sheets"), core photographs, thin-section data, or CD-only tables. Also excluded from the index are bibliographic references, names of individuals, and routine front and back matter.
