Different igneous units encountered at the bottom of Hole 856H. These units are characterized by low gamma ray and high resistivity and density measurements. FMS images and core observations suggest that the deepest unit is constituted of extrusive pillow lavas (Figure 5E) whereas the three shallower are basaltic sills.
