After the nightshift penetrated a gravelly horizon at 82 m depth, shallow water facies, rich in carbonates and interspersed by peat layers, characterized the sediments down to ca. 112 m sediment depth. Below this depth, darker, fine grained sediments continued. Coring was stopped at a bit more than 120 m due to wireline problems and because we do not have seismic data from the horizons below, which makes the scientific interpretation of these lowermost sediments difficult. The borehole loggers started logging the Gradiste site, hole 3C, in the late afternoon.
