Abstract: A report based on thermal conductivity measurements of samples from 53 of the first 80 ocean drilling project legs. The data was collected, shipboard by collecting the core samples, then pushing a transient line source probe through the core into the soft sediments. The temperature-time response of this technique gives a two-dimensional value for a plane perpendicular to the needle axis. Corrections are made to simulate in-situ conditions.
