Abstract: Ooids occur at 520 and 640 cm sediment depths in a deep sea core taken from a water depth of 3085 m from Arabian Sea. CaCO3 content of the bulk sediments in these oolitic sections at c. 520 and 640 cm is 58 and 72U+0025 respectively. Ooids show an excess of 50U+0025 Sr compared to marine aragonitic deposits. U-Th series radionuclide data on the separated ooids from 63 mu m fraction appear to suggest that they are younger than 25,000 y. They also show 1.2 plus or minus 0.2 dpm g-1 excess of 236Ra over that of 230Th. Transportation of these ooids from relatively shallower depths to the present location due to slumping of the sediments is envisaged.
