This is a data report of bulk sediment composition, grain size, clay, and silt mineralogy of Pleistocene sediments from ODP Leg 177 Sites 1089 and 1090. Site 1089 was drilled in the southeast Atlantic Ocean, close to the northern flank of the Agulhas Ridge, and Site 1090 on the southern flank of the Agulhas Ridge. At Site 1089 changes in clay mineralogy and grain size are linked to deep- and medium-water circulation. At Site 1090 sediment parameters and their temporal variability document environmental responses of the southeastern South Atlantic to the mid-Pleistocene climate transition.
