Smectites & Palagonites 55 Cs 0.387           µg/g Rock samples taken from DSDP Hole 418A, which in this particular case is taken to represent all oceanic crust. The fact that Hole 418A was drilled to 550m made it a prime candidate since at the time it was one of the deepest holes drilled. Along with its depth, Hole 418A has also been measured for K, Rb and Cs by other sources and found to have no active alteration processes. Hart & Staudigel 1982
